Is it as disrespectful to record the sound of the temple gong as it feels to photograph the scene? And in the process, is it thus disrespectful to record the Russian tour guide, and the screaming child, and the power tool, and rustle of velcro from camera bags?

The syllable ‘spect’ within respect is the same as in spectate, spectacle.

Respectus via old French and thus Latin: the action of looking back. This implication of the seen within respect, does it let listening off the hook?

Is it simply that listening requires more time, requires a sense of being truly present, and that this offers more opportunity for connection, contemplation… or am I telling myself convenient truths, to excuse my aural ghoulishness, to separate myself from the tourists?
