Texting in the tunnel

I have recently begun a new photo project. I am going to photograph people reading a newspaper or book in public. So far I have had very little luck. Every where I look I see people clutching smartphones. Walking, cycling, on benches, in cafés and restaurants. Smartphones are everywhere. For best viewing click in image to enlarge.

The conversations

We were enjoying our dinner at Garfunkel's in Victoria Station, when this young couple stopped outside. They were both involved in lively conversations, with what  was obviously two different persons. We would normally have found their behaviour irritating, but they were both so spontaneously happy, that we found it amusing Camera Nikon D5000

I’m telling you

 From being the tool and a status symbol of the busy executive, the mobile telephone has become a blessing and something near a curse. It is used on the street, on public transport, in cafe's and restaurants. Drivers clutch it whilst trying to steer and change gear at the same time, risking their own and others safety. The supermarkets are full of inconsequential chatter, that often continues right up to the till. Few things make me more angry, than when a customer continues the chatter  in front of the hard working person operating the till, whilst trying to punch the pin code into the card machine. I have seen this several times. It makes me fume. Camera Nikon D5000
