Why do you want to be creative? I know for me it's about getting "atta boys". It's about ego. I want to stand out. I want my pride to be stroked. I want my work to be different. So I can be unique in the world. Separated from the hoi polloi. I also shoot as a hobby, to take up time. To get out and enjoy the air. To capture beauty. Photography is art; aesthetic in nature, and there's nothing wrong with a calendar type picture to look at on the wall to take you away. What is creativity anyway? If you want to get atta boys, enlarge some of your better ones, especially ones of family, frame them, and then give them free to family and friends. I guarantee you'll get oohs and aahs and thank yous galore. And every time you visit their house, there will be your picture, framed, hung on their wall for you to see and make comments like, "Gee, glad you still have my picture up." And then watch their smiles and thanks. Again.
