In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.”
Recently I’ve been thinking about all the things that are quite hard to understand and that make me a bit sad. Apparently it catches my attention very often while taking photographs. So, what is it? I could’t have named it better than Andy who commented on one of my shots picturing two people completely “lost in their mobile worlds”. While they were standing next to each other with their noses glued to their cell phones it seemed as if they were much more connected to the devices than to each other. What is the conclusion? My generation seems to be glued to their damn cell phones. Maybe I’m not the right representative of my generation since I got my very first smart phone three days ago, but what I can see all around makes me sad. Have you ever noticed that people have their cell phones on the table while having a dinner with their friends? People don’t hang out together anymore, they hang out with their cell phones. It’s not my intention to immerse in the “social media addiction” kind of discussion, but sadly I have come to conclusion, that a face glued to a device of any kind is a symbol of my generation.
Thanks for stopping by!
