Thank you for votes and comments on The Salon, I only just managed to escape without losing my hair.

Todays images come from a walkabout around Gunwharf, all to do with mobile 'phones. I haven't titled them.

Well spotted, captured and processed all, Peter.

Just today the parents and I were on our way back from lunch and were at a zebra crossing...and commented on how the 3 people crossing were glued to their screens at the time. How more lamp posts don't get walked into I don't know!

Great set of images Peter. Mobiles are handy in emergencies but young people seem to spend so much time talking to people on their phones and yet seemed frightened to talk face to face or strike up conversations with other people.

It's getting ever harder to capture street scenes without snapping someone holding a phone. People will be able to have them implanted next to save them keep having to carry them around all the time.
