Last night I watched "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and highly recommend it if you haven't seen it. The cinematography is on part with nature documentaries and the soundtrack is one of the best out there. Anyway, there was a scene in it that really resonated with me where a freelance nature photographer is asked when he's going to take the photo he's spent weeks setting up for:
"Sometimes I don't. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don't like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it."
Sometimes in the Sierra I'll find myself so absorbed in the moment I won't record it, and those are some of my fondest memories in the backcountry. Does anybody else here have that "problem"?
