I was out for a walk at Kits Beach around dusk yesterday. I wish I could say I went with a subject or project in mind but I was mostly just out for a walk and snapping scenes that interested me in the moment. It wasn’t until I sat down to review the images last night that I noticed a pretty high percentage of the people in photos were paying more attention to their phones than thier companions or the wonderful scenery. I’d like to say I’m immune to this temptation of modern life but those that know me know better. I do try however to be mindful and keep my phone in my pocket when I’m out in the world. There’s a screen on the back of my camera but I try not to look at that either! I guess if there is a day each year where it’s okay to be a smartphone zombie it’s Halloween!
