Too Many lenses , Too few eyes (by NYtimes)

For many travelers, the goal of tourism now seems as much to be recording the trip as living the experience.

This impulse is neatly captured in a photograph by Lydie France of the European Pressphoto Agency that shows a crowd of people around the Mona Lisa, several of them holding up small cameras for snapshots. Why? Who needs a snapshot of the Mona Lisa? Why not just look and appreciate? The camera seems to form a barrier between the viewer and the experience.
