    Photography seems to have an almost universal appeal. It transcends cultures and history, at least as long as the technology has been available. I imagine that it’s in part because time is fleeting and it lets us hold on to the ephemeral wisps of experience. The photograph reinforces our memories in the way that stories and songs have always done. Still images and motion pictures tell the stories of our lives. The old thousand word adage applies.

    While this may be the initial impulse for the global popularity of photography, it always surprises me that for so many people there is an interest in taking it to the level of an art form. Websites on photography are prolific, as evidenced by this one. What motivates so many to explore the technical and artistic possibilities of photography?
