Seems like everyone is taking pictures of everything lately. The question is, “At what point does documenting an event take you out of the moment and take away from you from being connected to the moment?” Joni explores this question with an example of something that happened to her.
I often wonder at what point does taking photos at an event take away from experiencing an event. I am one of those who doesn’t take many pictures, unless I am intentionally wanting to share an event. For example sometimes I take detail photos of a hike so I can blog about it, but there are times I just need to be in the woods with my thoughts and leave the camera in my pack.
With all the high-tech gadgets and distractions, I think we all need a little more disconnect in our lives. Let me know what you think.
