Pesky Pretentious Pics…………..

IMG_4383I am guilty of the above, but like most members of the homo sapiens species, I point fingers at others……justifying that they are addicted to an extent which I can not fathom. I recently took a sabbatical from the virtual world with my better half, and sat back and observed the world leisurely, without the need to share everything I ate or did. (Trust me, it will surface in my blogs, it’s just a matter of time).

Since we were largely without a phone or the camera (yes, 90% of the time), we ate well, worked out, swam ( sloppily, see….I’m already sharing !!!! ugghhh)…..I took pictures for couples who requested me to, since I seemed not to possess a ‘shooting device’. Parents and children flocked to beautiful places and……………..instead of looking at each other or the surroundings………………they clicked ……….and clicked…………..and clicked…………..with their phones, striding off without a glance at the picturesque greenery or the peacocks around…………..a couple ignored their toddler who clung desperately to their shins as he wailed, while they smiled at their phone….I distinctly heard the words….’ah, worthy of a profile pic!’. 

When I was asked to click a close-up of a beaming couple, who’s child was too short to be included, they smiled and said ‘ no problem’…..while the child posed non-stop………….we all do it, but after all the clickety-click, can we put away our ‘weapons of mass shooting’ and look at and around each other?????????? the world is a beautiful place 🙂
