We Used To Talk….

I was out on the street with my camera in Barcelona.  A kid went by on his skateboard; it was only after I photographed him that I realised he was also ‘on the phone’.  That gave me an idea – I went looking for others doing the same…

    The ‘lens’ doing what it does best….a window on everyday life. In not too many generations to come folk will not have known life before instant mobile communications. I’m convinced they will also physically evolve and fingers will become longer and more dextrous after billions of hours texting/ touch screening!.I was riding behind an ancient falling apart John Brown tractor in the wild west of Ireland, as I passed I saw the elderly farmer had an I Pad mounted on a home made bracket in front of the steering wheel…AND a mobile phone clamped to his ear!. Like the new idea of ‘postcards ‘ for the blog. Steve

    • I passed a guy in Peru, ‘driving’ a large horse-drawn cart standing up, using the hard shoulder of a dual-carriageway, reins in one hand and phone in the other, busy on the touchscreen!!

  3. I would sit down to watch a movie with my girlfriend and she would be on her phone during the whole movie…I basically just watched a movie by myself. This is the World we live in.

    Hello Paul. I saw you are in Barcelona. Let me know if you want to have a tapa and a beer or need some advice of where to go. Enjoy! Jonathan. +34629982829

  5. It’s a shame that people are so busy being ‘social’ on their phones that they miss the actual social interactions going on around them. I’m a big fan of phone on silent and in my bag until I need to contact someone, much to the annoyance of modern age people who need a response 10 minutes ago.

  6. Very incisive. I regret we have a lost generation who now find human interaction really hard.

  7. Not just the young folks anymore. Now that granpa and grandma have figured it out, they really don’t have to speak to each other anymore! Damn shame.

  8. Spending all their time ignoring those they’re with, chatting to people that are not there!

  9. ” afraid we are guilty of this in our house too . . . Note to self. . . Stop it!
