My motivation to go out and photograph is coming across a scene like this. A young lady who had gone through a lot of troubles in her life and is finally getting her life back on track. If I had stayed at home I never would've seen this lady achieve her goal and to celebrate as though she had just climbed summited mount, Everest. I was genuinely happy for her when she reached the top and raised her arms in triumph. Sigh... that was a good day. Good times.
I have lost her info and forgotten her real name, but I will always remember her story. Scenes like this are what motives me to get off the couch.
