The Vicarious Phone Experience

Why were the best pictures taken when the camera was off
When the lens cap was on and the clicking had stopped
When the smile had fallen from her face
And the waterfall of tears not leaving a trace
When time had stopped the world clock
And etched designs in the canvas and smock
The veil was lowered and the dam was broken
The lens was dark like the moonless sky
The best pictures taken, happened in the dark
Where emotion flew free like a bird in the wind
Without a plan or a worry to spare
Without a pose or vanity fair
Where feelings flickered like the stars above
Ending in a final burst of glory

Why do the best pictures happen when the camera is off?

Because they finally stopped to see the world through their own eyes

Look up from the screen, there is a world to be seen
