    I think much that is written here is applicable to all professions / hobbies. I don't follow all the assumptions and deductions in this article, but on the whole the sentiment rings true for me. In my experience, many of the best photographs taken, have been shot when the photographer is engaging with the subject and has made some kind of emotional investment in the scene. When hoping for great photographs, 'happiness' or 'experience' are better goals to strive, than 'the perfect photograph.'
