You are at a cross road junction now,

Stop,

Take a brake,

Look around,

Look inside your heart,

Decide what interest you most,

Make up your mind,

Pack up,

keep going.................................................. until the next junction

photography is the capturing of truth, whatever that truth may be, and whether or not that truth is false is entirely up to you as well. o_O

or as i'd like to call it, albeit via a quote, "to capture pigments of one's imagination" :)

Photography is For:

Artist to express themselves
most people to capture the moment
Old people to relive their memories
for guys to tackle/tiko gals
for pple to make $$$
for pple to show off their equipment

most importantly,
For equipment manufacturers to make tons of $$$

Photography is a fruit. Its nice to eat but will decompose it its being left alone for long a period of time.
