Maybe I can use this very realization -- brought about by the overabundance of captured moments -- as a tool to help the aforementioned balancing process; to take a step back and slow it down. We experience so much, all the time. It's likely that this will always be the case. We're constantly experiencing, constantly changing. There will always be something to capture -- why take photos as though there will soon be a shortage of inspiring moments? Why take our present selves out of these beautiful moments just to get that shot? We should let ourselves capture, then let ourselves breathe. Capture, breathe; capture, breathe. There's so much around us to soak in, so let's make a point to choose certain moments to soak in fully, with all we are. Let's choose to do this more often than not.
Sometimes, though, one of those beautiful moments is the experience itself of capturing an image -- or in creating a piece of beauty that's fit to capture. An experience that would never happen if capturing were not an option.
