If cameras were not invented, would I invent them?

i remember waking up at the one six four, opening my eyes to the sunshine and the boy lying next to me and knowing why cameras were invented.  
"this is why photography exists!" i thought.
for this beauty and this light that loosely wraps itself around people and trails us all.

light envelopes us.
we are all surrounded by light and colour.
all this is instinctual and i understand.

the light swarms and overtakes and we are oh so gently surrounded and swallowed.
we exist in this light.
