Nobody photographs the photographers

“For amateur photographers, the only cost is the stress of perfection. One woman corrals two small children sparring over a bottle of Coca-Cola so that her sister can stand in line to pose in front of green-and-blue peacock feathers. The teenager who just had her turn with the peacock gets angry with her companion for wasting it by snapping an unflattering angle. But nobody photographs the photographers; on Instagram, the polished images become the reality, driving more and more visitors to this place.”
