Camera lens or an eye lens?
When we seize pictures on a camera or a smartphone, are we really capturing the moments by photos, or are we failing to do so?
We click pictures to store our memories that might fade in the future, and we embrace those fond memories again. Of course, it’s good to capture those moments, but sometimes, shouldn’t some moment just call to the vision of eyes than the camera lens?
The camera helps to apprehend our memories on a sheet of paper or in a phone gallery. However, we miss out on many feelings, emotions, the moment’s essence, a conversation, and a place while clicking those pictures; these pictures might not even help us relive those moments again.
“If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.”
― Sean O’Connell, in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Shouldn’t it be just like this for some moments? Won’t we remember it vividly through our imagination than the photo?!
Sometimes, the feelings and the emotions that stay with us during the moment help us to relive it clearly than a picture or a frame.
