Fairfield University psychologist Linda Henkel:

You’re just kind of mentally discounting it–thinking, ‘Well, the camera’s got it.’

I’ve noticed this in my own work, and that’s part of the reason I’ve neglected my photography for the last few years. I broke my Nikon a while back and, while waiting for its repair, noticed that I was enjoying travel a lot better when I wasn’t constantly looking at life like a photographer. I took trip to Paris a while back, and all I really remember from it now are what I see in the pictures I took; I don’t want that to happen to my time with my son while he grows up.
