Lost in Text (Weekend Reflections # 89)

Newtown, Pennsylvania (Starbucks window)

Do you think this guy had any idea there was a camrea in his face? As you can see from my reflection I walked right up to the window and took the shot.

  11. he looks concentrate on what he is doing : I guess he didn't see that shot coming...

    Nice to see a self-portrait of you, James, though...

    :)

    (So, this moving ?! How is it going ? Are you becomming nuts now that you have to re-arrange everything in a new place ?! ;D )

  12. I don't think he even saw you. Neat shot!

  13. He's totally oblivious! Lost in the world of technology. A great shot.

  14. this is a wonderful portrait
    if I was that guy I'd want a copy of this shot

    at least he isn't driving

  15. Great shot! He is oblivious! They all are! I had to slam on my brakes when a jaywalker suddenly stopped in the middle of the street.He was so engrossed in texting that he didn't move for a while.

    The old saying that God takes care of little children and drunks should now have people texting too.

  16. Lost in text, not in translation, as reflections are universal. :-) Outstanding capture, James, well done!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love your reflection photo, James. There he sits, at a window, knowing nothing of what's going on just outside. Texting his sweetie, no doubt!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I join the crowd, he's in his own world, never knew you clicked on him! Looks like your sneaking up on him from behind with evil intentions... Hehehe...

    ReplyDelete
  21. He certainly is concentrating!

    ReplyDelete
  22. No wonder there's now a ban on texting by drivers!! Great shot, James!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Beautiful, I love this picture with excellent reflexes that give full meaning to the theme, the phone.

    ReplyDelete

  29. Thanks James for this fantastic site.
    Perfect shot!
    When I just saw the photo, I expected that you know him.

  30. Brilliant, James! Sometimes here in NYC, someone will stop dead in their tracks while coming up the subway steps to look at their [Insert obnoxious device here], and the rest of us pile up behind them. Oblivious!

    ReplyDelete
  31. O what a sign of the times! To be connected you have to be disconnected! Great shot!

    ReplyDelete
  32. A great shot, James, and perfect in the b&w. I was going to make a comment about people always having their eyes on their phones, til I remembered I always have a camera in front of my eyes...LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh this is SO good! This guy was really into his text...

  34. That is awesome. I swear, your timing is exquisite. You always know where and when to hit the shutter to capture these candid oh so Human moments. This one speaks on so many levels. I love all the reflections, the little blurry lights coming out of your head, the slight double exposure juxtaposed against the clarity of the subject who is completely unaware of your concentration upon his concentration. Love the black and white. Hope all is well on the road...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I bet if you showed him the photo, he would be shocked, because I'm sure he had no idea you were there.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Fun shot, clever, too, to not quite get yourself
    revealed!

  39. this is such a sign of our times and reflects (pun intended) such a huge part of our culture! Love this James.

  40. Really superb candid shot, James!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love this shot. The black and white really does it, and your own reflection is so huge but so hidden.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love it! The guy has absolutely no clue!

    ReplyDelete

  47. So many people are doing this in the world. :-))

    Have a nice weekend!

  48. Hi James,
    He looks sort of glum, he was probably obsessively re-reading the "Dear John" message he got from his former girlfriend who dumped him because he was spending all his time playing with his portable phone and not paying attention to her... probably a lot of such cases these days...

    Hope all is well with you, was away in Germany for two weeks with no connection. But am back and hope to be back up to speed soon with photos and blogging... Are you back in California now ?

  49. Hey James!
    My best regards from BUCHAREST - ROMANIA

  50. He either didn't know or didn't care. Either way it is a real cool picture. I couldn't figure it out at first. I'm amazed at how clear he is.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I can't figure out how to put the meme badge on my site...any instructions???

    ReplyDelete
  52. This is cool!

    I've been busy the past weeks.
    Just visiting James
    Regards.
