Every picture has been taken already

Recently someone asked me:

Why are you taking pictures? Hasn’t every shot already been made?

I’d like to answer this one with a commercial from late 2005, yes that’s quite a while ago and it pretty much nails it.

Keep Me, Protect Me, Share Me and I will live forever – to me the most epic photography commercial ever made. It very well encapsulates all the reasons why I became a photographer.
