(a passage where Achilles, protaganist in "Omeros" gets caught by tourists' cameras after a hard day of fishing at sea:

"Achilles then cries against their clicking cameras and throws an imaginary lance.
It was the cry of a warrior who looses his one soul to the click
of a cyclops".

(Nobelprize winner 1992 Derek Walcott)

The metaphor of the camera as a modern cyclops.
Thinking of our news hungry hordes of camera men I like to link it to this quote from Wordwind.
