Blink snaps

“I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs.” – Garry Winogrand

Even when I’m not taking pictures with my iPhone I’m taking them with my eyes. This may be a sickness but there’s so much to see, especially in New York.

That’s why I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like for photographers once we’re able to film everything through some type of Google Glass device. All we’ll have to do is go back through our footage and crop out the images we want to save.

Recording everything is not the point of taking pictures. Curiosity is the main driver.

The social sharing on Instagram is just the icing on the cake.

I don’t care much about missing photo opportunities if I can acknowledge a good snap with my own eyes. A little bit of regret is part of the game, the trigger that forces us to keep our phone in hand.
