Please, digitally raise your hand if you are an avid picture-taker (yes, I realize that photographer is the proper term, but I sorta think there's a difference between the art of photography and the pleasure of frequent picture-taking). I am, and have been since my youthful days of disposable Kodak cameras. I just love capturing images of friends, places, random interesting/weird things, to keep in my archives indefinitely. At times, though, I feel concerned that my frequent picture-taking either gets annoying to my companions, or that it keeps me from being in the moment (especially thanks to iPhones -- the camera's always in your pocket, just asking to take a picture). How do my fellow picture-taking friends find balance in this? I'd love your input!
