Jillian Edelstein, on the topic of taking photos instead of living life:

It seems sad that world leaders such as Cameron and Obama, in the midst of a memorial for Mandela, found themselves unable to resist the power of taking a selfie, in order to prove to themselves that they were indeed present at the occasion. If they did not record it, how would they have proof that they were there?

If a tree falls in the forest… (Though I’m not sure this is all that different from any other photo op.)

    I think about this a lot, actually. Every time I go out people are on their phones. It’s a constant battle internally...
