I was struggling to make a photo that illustrated a concept like lost (or found). Then, an overnight 9″ snowfall made cycling dangerous and riding the bus, it struck me how many on the bus were totally oblivious to the person sitting right next to them. Not talking to each other, no interaction. Surreptitiously, I took this series of photos.
There were 11 people within 8 feet of where I was sitting, and 9 of them were completely engaged with their phone. One was using 2 phones at the same time! I am not sure whether we have lost our ability to engage with another person on a personal level or found a new form of communication to someone more remote. Probably a bit of both.
