This iPhoneography image is my commentary on how as adults our ability to be in the here and now is gradually eroded by all the stresses of everyday life. In the image the child is nearly all there ‘enjoying the moment’ whilst the adult is being pulled in various directions, mind wandering and missing out on the joy each moment can bring. This is a constant battle for me and the image hammered it home.
