We are all aware of the modern day method of reading text messages and walking.
It's really nothing new. I caught this gent doing it the old fashion way.

  4. This is one of those shots where you have a terrific amount of interesting background. The depth of field shows all the detail.

  6. And reading paper newspapers (which I still prefer) is quickly becoming passé as well.

    Your Chinatown is very different from the one I knew in San Francisco, which is old and has very close, narrow and congested streets (and, at one time, high rates of tuberculosis).

  7. I like the connection you drew between this photo and the modern issue of texting. I will confess that occasionally I get distracted in both old and new ways. Sorry!
