Funny Comic Takes on the Idea that Taking Photos Takes Away from Experience

photosandexperience1

It’s a pretty popular opinion these days: taking photos keeps you from experiencing the moment. It’s why concert venues and musicians are starting to ban photography, and why the top comment on the video of Dubai’s record setting fireworks show we shared was reprimanding the people in the video who were viewing it all through a cell phone screen.

Randall Munroe of the sarcastic and often hilarious web comic XKCD begs to differ, however, and he’s doing it through the comic above. Check it out for yourself and feel free to tell us what you think about the comic’s point of view in the comments down below.


Thanks for sending in the tip, Sam!
