photography and being present

continuing on from monday's post, a little food for thought: what does being "fully present" mean for all of us photo-happy individuals, snapping away at sunsets and flowers? does true presence in a moment mean it must be seen first person, and not through the lens? or is dedicated photography a different way of being present?

i don't presume to have an answer to that question, especially not for others. for myself, though, i think it might involve a combination of the two. sometimes, it's more than okay to document the little things that make life special and unique. and other times, it's even better to put away the camera and marvel at this world, firsthand.
