Photography has been a good friend ever since the chief photography mate on my Navy ship showed me the difference between a snapshot and a photograph, and ever since I discovered that I could just stroll into the fine arts school darkroom at my grad school and learn to print by watching what other people were doing.
I like photographs themselves, but the process of taking them may be more important to me. Years ago I had a friend who walked around with a camera held to his eye, for hours and hours. This was not the safest way to walk around, but he thought you had to see differently to be a photographer, and seeing through a viewfinder was the only way to do this. Debatable. But trying to photograph something encourages you to separate the wheat from the chaff in the scene before you. So the process helps you to see the world more thoughtfully.
