Photography is a very democratic form of creativity, not to say art. In fact, nowadays anyone with a digital camera and a bit of patience to take a hundred shots can come up with some good pictures. The positive thing about that is that only a few people stand out. I am not a professional photographer but I believe that taking photos is not something that can be left to mere chance. To me, taking photos means merging with the surrounding environment, understanding it and trying to recreate it by means of an image.
