Photographer's Note

Today's post is not so much the photo, but the story behind the photo.

I called this photo "Oblivious", in relation to the new young generation of 20 year olds out there.

I am simply amazed at how important their cell phones are to them. It could be at play, at home, even at work and while driving.

Looking at this young woman, i am literally 3 feet away from her, but she is completely oblivious to me photographing her as she's so pre-occupied by her phone.

As a man in my mid to late 30's, I'm not far removed from this generation - but in reality we are decades and decades apart. I work with alot of young people, and they too cannot part from their phone even for a few minutes. Texting has become the new form of communication, almost primary communication.

The photo i uploaded recently of a young woman in Central Park New York City also displays the same theme.

Certainly i am in the minority as i don't have an Iphone, i'm old because my internet is actually located in my house, and i'm not cool because i don't know all the abbreviations for texting.

What will the next generation bring?

Thanks for looking
Craig
