    No particular image, but urban exploration photography in general was influential early on.

    That swing picture is just hauntingly beautiful, by the way. I can see why it inspired you!

    Same here Aquarium Dreams! I would say that awesome pictures of abandon asylums re-sparked my interest in photography. I guess what first interested me was living on Oahu and wanting some decent pictures.

    I know, isn't that swing cool! Haunting.. That is a good word for that picture. I like it.

    I think it would be awesome to do some abandoned industrial pics, but here in Idaho, we don't have many abandoned buildings, that I know of.

    That picture is beautiful. "Haunting" describes it well.

    For me it's just been pictures I've seen on forums like this - not really one picture in particular.

    Art in general moves me. I am a painter also, and I love finding things that take my breath away, just like this picture.

    The one moment that got me into photography was when my mother got the family vacation photos back. I got bored at one point and started snapping photos with my fathers SLR. The photos didn't have any family members in it (which my mom thought was a must have).. just some photos of the area. I expected my Mom to push them aside and not take notice. Instead, she looked at it.. and said.. how beautiful it was and that it reminded her of some really nice postcards she kept over the years.

    That was more than 20 years ago... I asked her about it and she doesn't remember. I can't seem to find the photo.. oh well... the memory is probably better than the actual photo anyways.

    well, i guess my first own images .. nothing spectacular, but done by me .. and at a very young age (7-ish i'd guess). so i thought this very fascinating at that time.

    Everything by John Moran inspires me, he's an amazing Florida nature photographer. He's a photojournalist by trade, and having met him, his eloquence when speaking of the beauty of the marriage between nature and photography is really something else.

    Of course your mom wouldn't remember, it wasn't significant to her. But you remember it because it was "life altering" for you.
