As an avid photo collector I often wonder if my obsessive seeking of interesting images is a healthly one. It is a truly rewarding thing to do and my need to collect was confirmed by one of my heroes recently in a podcast I subscribe to. During David Attenborough's Life Stories on Radio 4, he spoke eloquently about the need humans have to accumulate. He compared this to the natural world and - lo and behold - animals do it too! He reveals that collecting is on the decrease in children. I encourage you to encourage them. Pass on and share the joy that comes from collecting, sharing and enthusing about photography. Keep our natural instincts intact, get collecting!
