One of the most ubiquitous sights every place one goes these days is that of people attached to their smartphones. If they aren't looking down at the phone they are holding the phone aloft to record an image or video of something in front of them. People are absolutely obsessed with catching the moment. The problem with this isn't that everyone has a phone or that there are too many images out there. The issue is more that many people aren't taking the time to look and think about what it is they are actually trying to photograph. They see the world though the screen on their phone and don't really look carefully and thoughtfully at the actual scene in front of them. Its grab an image and move on to the next and the next after that. There's nothing inherently wrong about this except that it results in rather mediocre photography. The lack of thought and attention shows. Smartphones are perfectly capable of producing interesting images, just as any type of camera is capable. The difference comes in paying attention and thinking. That's the part that requires practice and maybe slowing down just a little, to actually be there now, more in the moment than in the phone.
