That's great and most of the time I do, too. But every once and awhile
I look through a photographer's eyes (I guess) and say "this is a
perfect picture" until I see the cooler or whatever. When I do take a
picture I try my best to cut out the mundanities and pixel out what I
can't when I get home. The less 'pixeling' I have to do the better.
This doesn't mean one can't have fun anyway. And as I said, "magic
moments" are very rare, but very special when they happen. I'll still
enjoy an event without any, just as I still enjoy the SCA even when the
personna play that I would most enjoy isn't really a very significant
part of the game.
