I like the guy's shadow and stance. The stance of the mobile age.

The shadow of the young lad with the mobile really is amazing ... kinda reminds me of war time....
and it great that he is not the main character in your image..

Wonderful, wonderful light, great composition.........just not sure about the graininess of your latest posts..........keep 'Em coming though.

All the verticals are straight giving great attention to detail, the guy with the mobile NOT been the main interest in the shot works really well.
Well done Al

First thought - we are all slaves to technology, in one way or another. I like the way they are facing towards each other but entirely unaware of each other.
Second thought - that's one helluva strong shadow!
Third thought - I'm looking at the Coca Cola ad and wondering if I would crop it off. It balances the SNCF ticket machine, but dilutes the balance of the two figures. Cropping it off would leave the drain-pipe and its shadow as a 'frame'. I'm not sure, I shall come back.

Another splendid image, a perfect pair to yesterday's. I would retain the advertisement.

Yes, another fine shot, as always. The young man with the 'phone looks almost menacing, to me at least. I'd be hiding my wallet pretty damned quick if I was anywhere near him!

This gives the impression you're round the back somewhere, off the beaten track. Love the foreground and the way our eyes snake their way right into the distance.

A wonderful example of how technology takes over our lives and becomes an obsession. The Advert could vanish easily enough, but it might take away a modern item from this very NOW image.

You just keep doing great street photography.
