A two minute thought provoking video (see here) courtesy of Leo Babauta reminds me of watching a little boy of four or five at a display of birds of prey.
He had a beautiful kestrel on his arm, and his parents were saying 'Look here, look at the camera. Smile!'
I wanted to shout 'Leave him alone, can't you see he's go a wild bird on his arm? I think they may have mindlessly deprived him of the wonder of the moment, so keen were they to record it for the future.
Will he feel the thrill of holding a live bird when he looks at the photograph?
I don't think so. Do you?
