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.
