You focus the crosshairs. A photograph. A beautiful work of art. But, the beauty is raw. The subject isn’t as beautiful as you first thought, even though the scene hasn’t changed. A photograph is a machine, devoid of all emotion. A camera, as such, does not translate a person’s emotions regarding the features of the scene or person in front of us. The picture you take is only a log of a person’s features. An attractive person, most likely, won’t look so attractive in a photograph. Sadly, this leaves us with only our failing memory. So, next time you want to take a picture of a pretty girl on the street, give her a mirror instead and tell her to smile.
