This girl was recording the dancers down at Powell/Market with her cell phone. It reminds me this from the song 3×5 by John Mayer:
didn’t have a camera by my side this time
hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
It reminds me that some things are best left unphotographed. While some people say that the art of photography is knowing what not to shoot, perhaps the art of experiencing life for a photographer may be knowing what not to record. Watching the world through a viewfinder certainly distances you from what’s going on in front of you.
If you experience something in person and have no record, it makes the memory that much more sweet.
