Just a little short post to prove I'm still alive. It's nothing new, but it's been annoying me lately to see how many people go to concerts, sporting events, children's recitals...whatever...and then they witness the entire thing staring through their cameras.
If you neglect to document the event, does it mean you weren't really there? Did you miss it?
Maybe it's a generational thing. Maybe people have grown used to observing through the constraints of a lens and, somehow, it doesn't seem real to just watch it with your own two eyes. (Or maybe I'm starting to sound like Andy Rooney...and wouldn't that be a good reason to slam my head in a door?)
What about you guys? Do you take a camera everywhere? Do you document the whole thing? Take a couple of pictures and put the damned thing away?
I usually forget my camera at home, remember there's one on my phone, pop off a couple of shots and then enjoy the show.
