Photographer urges no-photo day

BBC NEWS reports that a photographer from Brighton, Southern England, has called for a non-photography day – today – 17 July. Under the catchcry of 'Celebrate the Moment, Don't Document it,' Becca Bland is urging everyone to not take photographs today. She says:
'put your camera down and appreciate the moment you are in'.
'Experience life in an unmediated fashion, without anything in front of your eyes. Live in the moment.'
Bland has a website set up to support her call. Can you resist the click? Ironically, I found out about this on the Flickr blog. Will the flickrati resist the click? Will this catch on the way 'Buy Nothing Day' has? Don't know. Stay tuned for the 'photo set' tomorrow...
