Question of the Day - Why do you take Pictures ?

Here is my answer -

 

People say photography is about aftering moments and freezing them on film.

I find it is not about capturing the moment less and more about realizing how that split moment has changed you. I’m always looking for ways for a subject that changes me into something / somebody else. “What will change me next” is what I’m thinking. May be you are looking for the same thing something that changes you in infinitesimally small ways - for when you are changed you haven’t changed the world but the world has changed you.
