I believe photography is a strong visual communication tool. The image should speak for itself the instant it captures your eyes. Images of mundane objects that is able to manipulate light, shadow and color to be glorious, like the shadow of a fork or a chair. If these everyday objects can compose a story, such as reflects a certain element that is intimate to that particular place--would be icing on the cake. An photo of an object that has a social statement would be, in my opinion, the epitome of photography.
Geez, after that eloquent treatise on photography, I feel like a bit of a tool saying I like to take pictures of churches...
My mother had boxes and boxes of old photographs that she went through a few years back. She ended up throwing out about 100,000 pictures of sunsets. She mainly kept photographs of the people she had travelled with. The more interesting thing years later isn't the sunset, but the people who shared it with you. Therefore, I like to take pictures that include the people I have met, or even pictures of me.
I do like to take scenery photos though, because I put them up on my wall to impress babes. I like nature photographs, because I live in a city and therefore it is the opposite of what I usually see.
