Also, "appreciated" is one thing, but "mean something" is, to me, something else that is possibly more of a shot in the dark, thinking of a photojournalism type shot that documents a iconic moment.

It doesn't have to be an epic or iconic moment to mean something. On a smaller scale, it could be as simple as stumbling across a news event when you're the only one with a camera. From a practical perspective, it could simply mean taking a photo that outlives you because you had it printed and distributed, opposed to a cell phone snapshot.

Or using photos to tell a story. Or bringing recognition to worthwhile individuals or organizations. Or promoting a local event. Or documenting a project or discovery. Or a photo that finds it's way beyond your usual circle of influence....

All true.  I guess it seemed that the OP was asking about meaning something in a greater sense but maybe I read more into the question.
