Phone a friend? by golftragic

Phone a friend?

Seen at Shwezigon pagoda.
What a fantastic image - such rich vibrant colours and a sense of tradition...and then the phone! Fav

Oh this makes me laugh! Those phones are getting everywhere and spoiling so much in life! Great capture! Fav!

Ooh, I do love the rich colours :)

Ha ha brilliant. Maybe he has a friend in high places.

His friend here seems to be using the old fashioned method of contact, but I do like his more direct approach.

Wonderful colours. This monk must have a direct line ..

Love this - the world is changing for everyone, I see.

Such a shame technology has crept in ...

Lol! What would ever have thought?

@dide Yes, that incongruity always caught my eye, especially when the user is as colourful as this monk is.

@pamknowler I had a chuckle too Pam, couldn't wait to get the shot before they moved on.

@hermann Yes, gorgeous rich colours, very appealing.

@onewing I guess that's a case of belt and braces or five bob each way.

@bintal I did wonder!!

@365karly1 It certainly is, some for the better, some not so much so. Sometimes I find it hard to keep up.

@fbailey In many ways I agree with you, but on the other hand the landline telephone system in developing countries is usually pretty flakey and mobiles overcome that deficiency. Very odd to see a monk walking round glued to his phone though.

@jgpittenger I loved the incongruity and the contrast between the two monks, just had to shoot them.

Perhaps praying to different gods :)
