People please, “Put the phones down”!
I saw this photograph recently when I was reading a story on the Hong Kong racing website.
I know technology is a wonderful thing but sometimes it just takes away the joy of living in the moment.
I remember when I went to watch Winx race at Rosehill earlier this year. Because of the SKY coverage my media pass did not allow me to take any photographs or videos of Winx to post on our website.
Although I was disappointed not to be able to post and share my memories of the day I got to live in the moment, actually be there, be present as it was all happening not looking through a camera lens. And what an experience it was. I wept as I was carried away in the emotion, feeling so proud of such a wonderful mare who gave us all so much joy.
I have seen Winx before in the flesh and taken many photographs of her but never felt the joy I did on this day.
Please put your cameras down and live in the moment, feel the joy that we experience every day in ordinary life. (Stepping down from my soapbox now)😏
