I have mentioned before that I find light fascinating. If there was no light there would be no photographs. On the same note if there were no shadows there would be no photographs. A delicate balance of light and shadow create photographs and if you get it just right you could have a great photograph. I strive for that, looking for the balance of great light, great subject and some darkness/shadow. It is not always easy to find this trifecta but that is what makes photography interesting for me, the never ending pursuit of improving my craft.
