Do you have no friends or family ?
In reply to v1fan, Jan 17, 2013

I ask this because I have friends and family and I find myself taking photos at gatherings ( although not at funerals ).  Later people, including me, look at these images and get some small bit of happiness from the emotional context of the images.  The vast majority of all photography is, and always has been, for this purpose.

You should try this, even if it means acquiring friends.

Art ?  Don't really care and never did.

If the only purpose I had for cameras was the ones you describe I'd stop using them completely.
