You Capture: Anti-technology

2 Mar

I figured that there would be enough pictures of cell phones and laptops for everyone today, so I went a different route. . . when I was in New Orleans, I was people watching and noticed this man, also people watching, at a café window.  And I began to think fondly of the days when people would sit quietly when alone and interact with their companions when not alone. 

Check out You Capture for. . . some cell phone pictures?  Laptops?  What do you think technology meant to everyone else?  Maybe a cool circuit board. . .

      Thanks. . . I’d love to be one of your favorites. . . especially for blogging about not liking technology. And, yes, I do realize the irony. . .

    LOVE this one and the whole idea behind it! So true and I do think it’s sad to see two people sitting at a table together, both so busy with their phones or laptops or Blackberries that they forget to talk to EACH OTHER!! Great, great capture and reminder!

    I remember those days. I still do it periodically just because it’s so peaceful.

    Great job- I thought of doing something along the lines of “old school technology” but just didn’t get there. 🙂

    Love your post. Great photo too. I did include some technology shots, but also included a “nature” one in my post this week.

    I love your anti-technology post and what a neat perspective you captured. Isn’t people watching the best?

    I love people watching! I focused on the things that plug into the cell phone, laptop, etc. this week, but it was a bit tough to think ‘outside the box’ with this one

    This is fantastic! Found you checking out links on You Capture. And now I feel lame taking a pic of my cell phone! LOL!
    Truly a fantastic and touching photo and rebellion against technology! =)

    This is am amazing photo! I didn’t want to post a photo of my computer or cell phone, either, this week. However, I did still go the technology route. I love your take on this topic.

    Love your perspective…I too have those moments…unfortunately, the technology train is one of those things that just won’t stop…however, I think it is necessary for us to stop using it from time to time to remind us that we don’t need it every second of every hour of every day. Great Capture!

    Brilliant take! I wasn’t very inspired by this week’s topic, wish I’d thought to approach it differently. What a beautiful shot! 🙂
