digital vs. analog

Cell phones are ubiquitous.

And that’s a problem for street photography because you’re flirting with a cliche when you snap a candid of someone engaged with their digital device.

But who can resist?

By contrast, how anachronistic it seems to spot someone savoring the printed word not on a Kindle but the old fashioned way!

  1. I LOVE these photos. Sitting in identical benches. He with his socks and sandles vs her with what even in B&W appear to be gold colored sandle straps and painted toe nails as points of interesting divergences.
    BOTH he and her in very simple and unassuming styles really for their generations.
    Love the detail available in these photos. Including his “forget me not” book marker. Would love to know what the rest of it said. Thus the enticement of your street photography. The wanting of this viewer to know more about the subjects that may never me seen again…

  2. Two different styles, but both of your subjects are deeply focused on what they are doing. You could call it a generational divide that meets somewhere in the middle. Lovely shots, couldn’t imagine them in anything other than black and white. Hope you are well!
