  24. It's true.. they are like zombies :) Great photos!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nice shots and very up to date, mobile phones are our flying pigeons of this century, bringing news and love letters. I like your ideas and the way you captured these strangers. Have a lovely evening!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This one is truly beautiful photos. I am completely surprised to see all. It's exceptionally looking one of unique featured source for me. I am really surprised to see those one. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is a wonderful series of images.....I guess the mobile phone addiction is everywhere. It's amazing more people don't have accidents while walking and texting. Greetings from California, Gina

    ReplyDelete
  28. Interesting! Funny how people are so taken by their phones! I'm glad there are a few of us left to notice what's around us!

    ReplyDelete
  29. nice shots, but I don't know if we are talking about a mania or about a disease :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great collection of photos! I often walk around with my phone out as well, but I try not to do it while crossing the street.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Slices of life ...
    Beautiful shots! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fotografii foarte frumoase. Pete negre pe covorul alb, oamenii cu preocupările lor.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I suppose it would be very difficult these days to find a person NOT holding a phone :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. We were strolling down the street of a little touristy town not too long ago (on our last roadtrip) and began to count the number of people who were talking on their cells -- I swear we were just about the only ones who weren't using them. (We have them of course, but I don't know what people find to talk about so much!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love the shape and composition in the first, I find it very attractive with delicious backlight. Greetings.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Cool candid shots! I am a person who can't text and walk at the same time so none of those are me. lol.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Cell phones sometimes become a menace to society...great captures.

    ReplyDelete
  38. A very insightful series! I like it. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. no matter how old you are, 10, 20 or 60 you will need a mobile phone. You can speek with your kid or anyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Everywhere you look, there is someone on their cell phone. We're losing contact with the real world. That scares me.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Interesting photo topic. My phone is never turned on. Guess I don't need it, huh? :) I enjoy reading the comments on this as well.

    ReplyDelete
  42. At least none of these people are driving while using their mobile phones. I like your pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  43. We can't live without them :)Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  44. It's so true...people seem almost to be unable to take a walk and enjoy their surroundings, these days, like they're more connected to the virtual world than the real one...!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great series on human studies. Funny how we are around the globe attached to the phones. Love the work you do in B&W! I need to post more monochrome work too.

    ReplyDelete
  46. yea, that is what people looks like today. It is strange not many accidents happen.

    ReplyDelete
  47. i think it's my first time to see the header or is it my first time here? aside from your entry, your header caught me. nice shadow shot.. late visit from Shadow shot sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  48. i really like this series of photos! we are all so attached to our cell phones now, aren't we? such a different world! love the b&w.

    ReplyDelete

  50. Wow cool captures!

    Happy weekend ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  51. So true, so true.
    One of the many reasons I don't have a smart phone.
    Did you know there is an app which will warn you of oncoming traffic?
    Yep, I just read about that last week.
    (I'm being sarcastic *or* ironic; it's too early for me to decide which.)

    Your photos...I love how you "see" things.
    Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love your thought provoking and interesting shots. Seem like they might be missing something...

    ReplyDelete
  53. What people did before mobile phones:)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Big smile for this post! Great shots of busy people:-)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Great series! Love them all! Don't know which one to pick;o)

  56. Tatiana, this is my first visit to your blog and I find it beautiful...browsed back quite a bit. I'll be back.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Nice pics!!

    I never use my cellphone while walking, I'm always afraid I'm gonna fall. :P

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great shots, Tatjana. It's amazing that they are falling over as they are walking and using their mobile phones!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Haha I walk like that most of the time too :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wonderful captures. It seems like we all spend a lot of time with those gadgets in our hands!

  62. I only use mine for taking photos when using my decent camera would be indiscreet - hardly ever use it for calls.

    ReplyDelete
  63. What a fun sequence of shots. It is amazing how much time people spend on their mobile phones.

    ReplyDelete
  64. We have to keep up with the times, everyone's using the phone! Nice shots~

    P.S. Could you please turn off your word verification, they are difficult to decipher, after so many tries. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Everytime I change my phone I do the same as them! :)
    Have a nice evening!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I know- is it not the craziest thing??

    ReplyDelete
  67. These are excellent - and funny - pictures of cell phonemania.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Amazing, isn't it? I wish we would pay more attention to each other, rather than our phones.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Very nice! Love candid shots. They only thing that could have made these better, would be if you took them with your phone...

    ReplyDelete
  70. :0) Its how it is every day :0)

    ReplyDelete
  71. These are wonderful observations again, Tatjana.
    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  72. An all too common sight...sadly.

    Have a wonderful weekend~

    ReplyDelete
  73. As always, love your black and whites, can't help but wonder if "multi skilling" is returning to humankind!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Nice series, unified by cell phones!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Great shots ... cool too!

    ReplyDelete

  83. As always, very interesting shots.
    Happy Weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  84. The whole world had gone crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Interesting shots. I often wonder when people like this are going to walk into something unexpectedly because they are not paying attention.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Interesting theme. Great captures.

  90. Good series... and it certainly wouldn't take much to catch me in that position.

    ReplyDelete
  91. What would we do without our mobile phones??!!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Beautiful watching of peoples with phone-Mania. Have a nice weekend, Tatjana. Kind regards, Synnöve

    ReplyDelete
  93. Unique shots! I see that everywhere--people looking at their phones. My cell phone doesn't get a signal in the mountains where we live, so the only time I use it is when we're travelling somewhere not in the mountains! I forget that I have a cell phone, so it's funny to me to see people always looking at/talking on their phones.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Love it! We really do have our noses buried into phones these days :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. great post. Looks like home...every one is infected...gotta know what's happening all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Great shots and love the shadows. I'm from a generation where reading the newspaper or reading a book is what people did while taking a bus, sitting in a cafe etc... Now all you see are phones :) Nice post

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great street photography. Love the grainy b&w feel.

    ReplyDelete
  98. great shots, thank you for visiting my blog

    ReplyDelete
  99. In a strange kind of way, mobile phones bridge the generation gap! A familiar street pose from all these participants!

    ReplyDelete
  100. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL... although I don't like this mobile mania.

    You do great photographer and wishing you a good luck in all endeavour in life.

    Happy SSS...

  101. Yes, we get use to having something, and it would be hard to image not. LOL
    Great photos!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think that the black and white shows what a stark contrast there is now between the mobile users and the people who don't...I like this...

    ReplyDelete
  103. Fantastic shadows in this series of clever shots.

    ReplyDelete
  104. A wonderful series of images...

    ReplyDelete
  105. Topical commentary on the wired (metaphorically speaking) world we live in.

    In the short time I've followed your blog, you appear to be using the same vantage point to capture your images. You have knowingly or otherwise discovered that location isn't a limitation.

    Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wonderful people and street shots! Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  107. These are wonderful! You sure have a great photo essay. All that desire to connect, yet these people are alone.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  113. Great series of Shadow Shots, a worldwide phenomenon..

    ReplyDelete
  114. These are such a telling statement to conditions everywhere. Nobody can get away anymore.
    Great captures!

  118. we comunicate by walking and we forget to look around

    ReplyDelete
  119. They're certainly apart of our world, whether we like them or not! The B&W makes them more dramatic.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Fantastic shots. Where would we all be without our phones?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Like walking in the sleep , they walk but they are thinking somewhere else.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love your photos - they are so wonderful! Thanks so much for your nice words at my blog! I'm so glad you came by!

    ReplyDelete
  123. It's also common view here. Great shots indeed :)

    ReplyDelete
  124. It certainly is an epidemic!! Great captures.

    ReplyDelete
  125. It makes you wonder what people would be doing if they didn't have them walking down the street....perhaps smiling at the people passing by, nodding a friendly hello?!!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I love this series of your wonderful capture! Man, woman, young and old, are all on mobile phone!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Mobile phone has conquered the world !

  129. Love the shadows...and how true, almost everywhere you look today there is a person on his/her cell phone - now I will look for the shadows they cast! Happy Shadow Shot Sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I think i've left a comment in this photo but for some reason it didn't go thru. Thanks anyway for your visit and kind messages. Have a happy Sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Great shots...I hope these people are watching where they are going...WHOOPS, didn't see that curb there!

    ReplyDelete
  132. It's almost like everyone has their blankie or binky. Love the way that last shadow shows up.

    ReplyDelete
  133. It i the same here...hard to remember now when we weren't all linked continuously.

    ReplyDelete
  134. All great images. It will soon be hard for me to remember a time without cell phones :)

  137. Just a quick note to tell you I’ve nominated you for a “Versatile Blog Award”!

    Don’t know what that means? Neither did I when I received this award last week from a fellow blogger named Karen at http://thewellseasonednest.blogspot.com/. I did some research and found a website http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/ that helped me a lot. I also began to notice, as I surfed around, the “Versatile Blog Award” button on some blogs I was visiting. Visit my blog to see the announcement of your blog as a recipient of this award.

    Your blog has captured my attention for a long while and inspired me. I love your photos, in black and white they show emotion and feeling without the clutter of colour! I like the look and feel of your blog. You are genuine, not self-serving, and not writing to accumulate “followers”, but rather with passion. It is a good chance for me to say “thanks” for delighting me through your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Really great shots...now days almost all people goes with cell phones 24/7.
    Thx for visiting my place.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Indeed! It seems no one, «Louis» included, can walk anywhere without checking the mobile phone!

    ReplyDelete
  140. Like your style in black and white.
    Thanks for you comment on weekend refections

    ReplyDelete
  141. Such a common urban scene! Captured so well.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Everyone everywhere seems to have one!

    ReplyDelete
  143. EVERYBODY is doing it! A new epidemic...but I think it's a good one. I like the variety of people you captured here. Have a great week.

  150. Fantastic photos, and love the black and white theme of your blog!

  151. those are great! everyone are always on their phones everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  152. Very suggestive photos!You know, the Queen of Denmark said she doesn't have a mobile phone and that it seems ridiculous to see people talking with hands up,in the street :D.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Everybody are mania in one way or another.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Very cool captures :) I'm becoming your fan :)

    ReplyDelete
  155. These photos really tell a cultural story. Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Thanks so much for all of your visits. I think I am finally up and running again. I really had a huge mess on my hands, but gradually am getting the library of picture back into some semblance of order. I missed this one while I was down and out. Mobile Mania is everywhere. Mine sits on the back seat of my car...that eliminates any temptation to put it up to my ear if someone calls. I would NEVER drive and dial...and I do NOT have texting. It takes all the concentration I an pull out just to drives safely. I really do like your black and white photography. You definitely inspire me to try harder with the medium. genie

    ReplyDelete
  157. ah, indeed... we cannot do anything anymore without one :(

    ReplyDelete
  158. very cool shots! thanks for stopping by :)
