The phone call

By saltireblue
I was attracted by the sound of this young lady sharing her phone conversation with all who were near enough and who cared to listen. Why has it become so popular to have your conversation on speaker phone these days?
As this was a quick grab shot before she moved her outstretched arms, I didn't manage to frame the shot to get more space at the top to include the top of the lad's head.

Many thanks to all for their interest in Thursday's effort - all very appreciated.

Thanks for bothering.

Is that Boris Becker in the background playing his ‘get out of jail free’ card…

That's an excellent photo Malc - so much in it

And nothing wrong with cropping the top of his head ... you have his whole face in, and it's expressive too ... you wonder what their dialogue is about

Do you know much about cropping?

There's quite a lot of useful information to be found on epz

It's an intensely annoying trend, but you do pick up some wonderful snippets about people's lives...

Self-publicity, perhaps? I wish they wouldn't.
Very few of them are quite so picturesque, though!

No, Colin, I don't, and would welcome any advice. I'm sure there are experts among the membership. Perhaps you could point one of them in my direction?Wink

Boris is wishing someone would offer him a few quid for the dog.

I don't get the speaker-phone thing either; most of us prefer to keep calls private, however mundane they may be. Good social commentary, Malc.

Excellent composition Malc. Great busy street scene and full of interest.
And it is definitely Boris. Is Norway sort of like an open prison now then ?

I often notice when people are on their mobile, they tend to shout, as if they want everybody to know your business. Good candid with eavesdroppers showing an interest in the conversation?

I usually have mine on speakerphone these days, only 'cos it's easier when wearing one's hearing aids! Don't in public though, I don't want others to know all my business 😬 As Ian says, many people tend to shout whilst on their phones, especially on buses, I thought the whole idea of a phone was you didn't have to shout 😳 Great candid, by the way, Malc! 😃👍🏻

Better than when they used to have the ear phones in. At least you get to hear both sides of the conversation now...Smile
Excellent shot sir.
