Pictures of people taking pictures of people

The artist asked me to take pictures at the opening night of her exhibition, which I was glad to do because it would give me something to keep me busy instead of standing around struggling to make small talk. I wasn’t the only person with a camera however.  In fact, it was hard to take a picture without catching someone in the background angling his or her own shot.  Rather than take my assignment seriously, I made it a game to capture the other photographers at work.  Camera phones and Facebook certainly allow information and experiences to spread faster than traditional media, but I wonder if people are actually clicking through the galleries of pictures we spend so much time to take, or if sharing on social media is more of an individual experience.
