The ease of photography versus quality

“…it is the very ease of taking a photograph that is also the cause of many pictures being disappointing.”

I have trained myself, or rather, forced myself to consider a scene before snapping away. It’s actually quite difficult keeping oneself from impulsively pressing the shutter once that viewfinder is raised to the eye. Not every scene or view is worth a photo I’ve since discovered. I say this because I tend to always have a camera with me and therefore so is the photo-taking impulse. That same impulse almost demands the capture of everything, sometimes just in case it turns out to be worth something. Often it is not.
