  5. Ahh, you were right this is such a great one!

    Well, I think my love of photos comes from my total lack of them when I was younger. So capturing daily moments or mundane things is pretty important to me :)

  60. I love taking pictures because of three main reasons-
    1: Life moves too fast for me to remember the details.
    2: I'm terrible at keeping a journal- if picture=1000words I keep a pretty awesome journal.
    3: It's my main outlet for being artistic. I'm not that artsy, but pictures give me the chance to get a glimpse of how it is to be artistic.
