I am happier when I see the world through the eyes of a photographer. Colors and patterns appear that would otherwise be overlooked.
My advice to the photographer: "Be on the lookout for pleasing patterns and colors that are all around us but go unnoticed by non-photographers. Take the photo. Decide later if you want to share it. Make modifications to see the results. Your life will be richer and so will the lives of those you share your vision with." It really helps to have a digital camera so you don't overlook shots due to the price of film and development.
The best book on photographic composition I've read is "Masterclass in Photography" by Michael and Julien Busselle. "The qualaties that make a good photograph are shape, form, texture, pattern, perspective, and color."
My favorite part of Flickr is looking at My Contacts Recent Photos.
