Why Photography?

I've been asked before, "why do you shoot photography?" I've given many responses but I'll tell you my real reason.

I shoot photographs to leave as evidence that I existed.  Wow, how existential?  Well, yeah, that's it precisely.  I would love to leave a photograph behind that clearly speaks my perspective on the world.  A photograph where someone would look at it instantly know I took it.  A photograph that is undoubtedly me.
