Too many photos, too few memories : Comments

By Bernard Toutounji, published 21/10/2013

The more we obsess with taking a photo of every moment in life (moments that more often than not have no need of being captured) the less we have the chance to live that life.

I'm assuming this is tangential criticism of the new people's Pope for taking sinful selfies.

If God wanted us to take photos wouldn't he have OK'd it in the Bible?

Hi individual

Is not the Bible the literal word of God as revealed in the Bible's last translation-reediting?

Or is

incorrect?

Yours Faithfully

Pete

Pete,
Yeah, the power mongers would say that. Religion or rather superstition is the oldest tool known to man to control the masses but when they invented money as well that's when the wheels went wobbly & they have been wobbling ever since.
There are many decent people out there who are being shafted every minute of the day by religious & finance outfits. If there is indeed a God then the religious will be in for one hell of a ride when God decides it's time to shake the hypocrisy out of them.

< The problem with our photographic obsession though is that we become less interested in 'living' the moment and more interested in 'capturing' the moment >

Hmmm. Maybe true for some people, Bernard. But I think for most of us, taking a few photos is just part of living the moment. Afterall, they are just so quick and easy to take. They really donít detract from us living the moment, do they?

< What will last is the memory we have created of events and moments, loaded not on a 'memory' card but deep within our hearts and minds. >

Yes but those downloaded photos compliment the memories, and help to bring them back more vividly and accurately when we view them years later.

Do people go back and look at photos a great deal Ludwig? It would be in interesting to know. A friend returned from an overseas trip a few months ago with almost three thousand pictures. After an initial flurry of activity getting them sorted into folders on her computer she hasn't mentioned them. Do we even bother to look at the images other people people post on social media, or are they just visual wallpaper?
