Missing the Moment... (or the Death of Nuance...)

We really enjoy technology, and our smart phones are invaluable at this point in our lives.

So are my cameras...  But sometimes fetching and fumbling with a camera to capture a fleeting moment interferes with participating in- or even enjoying- ofttimes missing the essence of what just happened...

We didn't choose this lifestyle so we could miss out on things...

When I am left with only captured images [however magnificent I may imagine them to be...] but no recollection of any feelings evoked by the event [because I wasn't really 'present'...] was my effort worth it?  Not always...

Often we insert our devices between ourselves and those we 'interact' with, not unlike a photographer and their camera. We choose to interfere with- even prevent- capturing the nuance; from truly being there. It's like eating beautifully prepared food that has no flavor or sustenance... wax fruit...

Perhaps, then, the following collection is a fitting sequel to my post from Nov-2014 about Taking Communications for Granted:
