There are so many great amateur photos out there. Try the “instagram” app for the iPhone, for example, and you can see photos other people have posted which become popular. Why take even more photos? Why write new songs, new books, and so on, when there are already so many? For the fun of creation! That’s why we are here… because it was fun to create us.
I’ve said I’d like to explore strange new worlds, but why not apply that excitement of discovery to this one?
