A telling moment, Tina,

nonetheless, they may have been driving for hours to get to the  
airport and took a bit of time out to fiddle with their gadgets.   
Better than bickering.  When I saw the photo, it wasn't till I read  
your telling caption that got the message.  I live in Japan, and in  
waiting room and on trains, everyone of all ages is fiddling with  
their cellphone, so it looked all to usual to me.  My daughter is  
seven and hasn't expressed an interest in having a mobile phone, so I  
can count a blessing there.

As for appreciating reality through a viewfinder or not, I took an  
afternoon by a riverbank to photograph swallows in flight.  There was  
an unforgettable time when it was all just too beautiful and I had to  
put the camera down and simply watch.  A pro would have sacrificed  
that, or risen above it, to get an awesome photo to share.  This is  
the only one I could keep, but the one I took with the camera put down  
was much better (the one that got away!).
