There are two main reasons why I take so many photographs.
Photography is the most effective destresser for me. I find it to be relaxing and it has the power to take my mind completely off of everything else. Put a camera in my hand and all the stressful events of the day melt away.
I feel DRIVEN to photograph. I seem to have an irresistable urge to capture the scene, freeze the moment, and catch something with the camera that my eye cannot even process (see the photograph I've uploaded for this blog entry for an example of this). I am constantly scanning my surroundings for the next photo opportunity...even when I do not have my gear with me.
