Are you there? by maggiemae

Are you there?

With beauty in front of her like this, who would want to spend ages on the phone - as she did!

The men are as bad as the women though I suspect its in self defence! Even saw one woman in the pool with her mobile!
I've seen people on holiday, sat on sun loungers, working on laptops and mobile phones; that just isn't a holiday and life is worth far more ....................

Love the photograph (and the sentiment)

@phil_sandford Thanks Phil - the women and girls just can't bear missing out on what others say etc. Heaven knows what the men do!

What a pity to ignore this beautiful setting! A lovely capture and great composition.

Lovely shot; nice focus and light. And yes, the ever-present phone....

What a beautiful image! Yes I think mobile phones should be left at home when you go on holiday!

Wonderful image, hope she gets off the phone and enjoys the view!!

It amazes me how people are so attached to their phones these days. Why do they have to be in touch with everyone all the time. Don't they ever want smoke quiet time.

I took a photo last year of a chap taking selfies with his phone in the surf http://365project.org/onewing/365/2018-12-19

I agree. Shame to feel the need for a phone in such a great setting.

They do not seem to understand the relaxing part. Great pic!

A lovely image. Phones have taken over, haven’t they?

@onewing Its habit, I think. Nobody now knows how to sit and do nothing except think - ponder is the word!

@brennieb I hope you couldn't hear her talk on the phone! I would have been mad!

This is a beautiful image (... notwithstanding what your subject was doing!)---

@rhoing I think so, Thom - the image is clear and stands out against the bright light of sun and water!

I'm with you MM. I don't get the rusted-on bit.
