'Take' and 'make' definitely apply to very different photographic methodologies. It's not just about being pedantic - but these days, anybody who takes something seriously for more than 20 minutes is pretentious. I like taking and making pictures, and use the words interchangeably, depending on how I'm shooting and, I'll be honest... who I'm talking to. You don't speak the Queen's English when chatting with the plumber.
I know you know that my reply was tongue in cheek. Just having fun, and poking fun at the establishment. It's lovely to watch some people cringe when I utter those words. Noted photographers like Sid Kaplan calls them 'snaps'. Who cares?
