    Many different reasons. It depends on the subject.

    I take photos of my kids for memory, I take photos of man-made landmarks and architecture because of the beauty and complexity of it, I take photos of nature because nature trumps man-made 10 folds.
    Regards,

    Because I long to capture those unique moments that will soon be gone and to capture the beauty of nature.

    I love to take pics but I'm definitely not a photographer. I just try go for the artey shots but they normally turn out funky. I wish I had talent but unfortunately it's not the case.

    I love photography because it is an art all its own. I like the randomness, the surprise of something you think you are capturing at the moment, then when you look at it later can be something different entirely - usually for the better. With digital, you can then have even more creative control in the "digital darkroom". That's where one can express even more creativity.

    I guess I just love the ability to capture a moment in time and go back to it whenever I want to. It helps to sustain fond memories.

    There are so many different ways you can affect how the person feels (the impression they receive from it) by what the picture shows or doesn't show.

    I just love how photography captures the best, and even the worst memories. It lets you go back in time and reminisce.

    I love anything creative. There is just something about taking a picture at the right moment that just defines the old cliche "a picture is worth a thousand words".. I love playing with the equipment and messing with lenses, lighting, all that boring stuff

    I started out photographing exotic cars and have since evolved it into a pretty cool little business (you can see the link in my signature)

    I'm the type who doesn't love anything that can't (or won't) love me back. Hence, I don't love photography. It's something I enjoy doing, and it's also one of the things that I do to make a living.

    I like to frame things, placing things in/out of context, putting more/less attention to certain elements.

    I'm the kind of photographer that always tries those strange angels, constantly plays with the zoom, moves aside & climbs on things, just to get the perfect composition.

    One of the things I like is seeing something and capturing an image in a way that conveys the emotion that one had at the moment of taking the picture.

    I love photography because it allows to share my point of vue on reality.

    It can be a moment, a specific angle on something (or someone) everybody has seen.

    Photography, for me, is about distorting reality :-)

    2 Reasons:

    1. To capture those special moments. Then you can look back and just smile.
    2. Some shots you take can look amazing. Especially with things like nature. I have seen some amazing pictures of clouds taken right outside my house.

    most of my photos are nature related, which means they may well be once in a life time moments. photography captures themand allows you reminiss and show others things which people might never belive otherwise!
