The photography habit is in truth an extension of my photo album habit. Not scrapbooking, but collections of my favorite photographs from my life, a habit I started in middle school. In the early days I would physically trim a photo to remove distractions or otherwise improve the composition. From this I learned to get the composition right when I snapped the image in the first place. Now I like to think I am taking it to the next level with an improvement in focus and creative point-of-view. In the end, when I am old and grey, I want to be able to look back through the years with my children and truly enjoy, on every level, each photographic moment of their lives.
