They are texting each other, of course!
Well seen; nicely bent (as Ollie - bliba - would say); and a first-rate b&w.
Have a wonderful and peaceful week-end!

I'm not a fan of digital manipulation - so often, an excuse for not taking hte picture right to begin with.

Here, though, you have shot brilliantly, and then processed to add the feeling of not really being in the real world...

Part of the alienation is that some people aren't at ease with the technology - and that shows!

Outstanding.

I haven't manipulated it John, it's shot as is in camera - with a lensbaby. Usually I get a comment to the effect that someone doesn't like lensbaby images..............Wink

I do appreciate your comment.

And yet, people appear to communicate less and less the more they let the machines take the strain! Very well captured. Have a lovely family weekend with lots of real communication. Grin
