People Pictures – The Curse of the Mobile Phone

When it comes to taking pictures I like doors, statues, balconies and washing lines, Kim on the other hand likes people pictures so I thought I might share a few of them with you.

This one was taken at Sintra near Lisbon in Portugal…

Like a lot of people you come across these days on holiday they are not talking to each other they are too busy checking their social media accounts.

On a visit to Warsaw we had dining difficulties but luckily the hotel restaurant could accommodate us for a special Valentine’s Day buffet and we enjoyed a fine, if rather expensive, meal and a glass or two of wine.

One thing that intrigued me was that although this was Valentine’s Day with a special menu there were a number of people around us who seemed preoccupied with their mobile phones.  A young couple at the next table barely spoke a word to each other as they endlessly scrolled through their digital lives rather than attempt a conversation with each other.  I wondered if they had booked a table for four, him and her and their two tablets.  It seemed like a waste of money to me to pay for an expensive meal and spend so much time on Facebook!

  1. I like those people photos and the Valentine’s Day meal sounds like a treat – and too bad not everyone can unplug fro dinner

  2. The worst is when you’re in a big group (of friends) in casual conversations around a fire … and some of them are on their phones and when you ask them what they are doing, the will just say “oh don’t worry, you can continue talking, I’m just playing a game” … huh ..?

  4. I have been in restaurants where couples don’t speak to each other because they are using their phones. Unfortunately, my husband is also keen on checking his phone regularly 😦

  7. That’s right. Nowadays, people do not have time for each other but they have so much time for their mobile phones.
