I’ve taken photographs for most of my life. Most people alive today have been photographers at one time or another.
The same holds true for other creative activities.
The common thread of creativity is thinking in unique ways of expressing yourself using many methods.
As for me, I have a hard time drawing stick people… I tell people that I don’t play an instrument, I play the radio.
While I do have some basic carpentry skills, I can build a deck or a fence or something fun for my grand kids, the one thing I’m able to do better than many other people is capture interesting images using a camera. This is my art. It’s what I do.
