(Hometown IV v. 2)

I watched a small documentary piece on war photographers today on CBC Sunday. I had to stop because it was too emotional. I don't know how people do it but I am very interested in why. I can't figure out how they keep manipulating the little box even in the face of great danger.

I'm fascinated with why anyone does anything for that matter.

I've spent a lot of time working out why I take the pictures I take. I have learned a lot about myself through it. In the face of some emotional upheaval I could keep manipulating the little box (or big box in my case) but the result is a small pile of technically poor photos. Basically what I'm trying to say is that the majority of the photos I took last weekend stink. Regardless, I learned a few things about myself so I suppose in some round-about and disatisfying way it was actually a success.
