Everywhere we stopped along Hwy 1 in Big Sur there were people lined up aiming their phones at the scenery, each other and themselves. Such is life. Everyone and anyone can be a photographer now and get descent fotos of things and in just seconds your images can be displayed for all to see on social media. Compare this to before 1900 when the average person had to go to a photographer to have their portrait made and many people couldn't afford to do that. Even 33-years ago when I first visited the California Central Coast there were very few people taking pictures on this scale.
