photography is a curseword

"my baby. 35mm nikon camera. im huge into photography and have been since i was taught to use a camera. of course its the “popular” thing lately, but its not even artsy photos, it’s photos of my family and friends and myself. it’s me catching little moments and memories and holding onto them as long as i live."

I found this on fuckyeahtattoos, and I would have thought a lot differently of this tattoo if I hadn't read in the caption the meaning behind it.
Because something I've discovered recently is exactly that. To me, photography isn't about taking pretty pictures of pretty things and seeing how many comments you get on Flickr, it's about capturing memories.

isn't that what photography is supposed to be about in the first place?
