Lost in Text

Lost in Text 1

I managed to catch a few people lost in texting whilst I was in Brighton, so I made a Lost in Text Flickr group.

I find the look on people’s faces, both absent and engaged at the same time, fascinating. I especially like these people who were working in these tiny booths on the pier, with absolutely no business going on. They seemed both trapped in little boxes and yet freed by their phones and engaged in other lives.

I’m sure there are plenty of others that people have out there, so feel free to add to the group and tag any images with “lostintext”.

on my way to work (cycling) I encounter so many pedestrians lost in text (phone) and music (iPods) while walking, soon they’ll add watching videos on the iPhone and play Wii on the go.

I’m amazed at how many pictures there are of people texting and cycling. I’ve done it too, but not it traffic!
