A generational divide nicely seen Martin.  I love the stone pathway leading to the elderly gentleman, and the fact that the girl is immobilized by her technology.

Re: untitled

the old and new horizons.

The horizon of exploring the outer world and now driven inside of the techno-mind....

What do think about the possibility of the technological singularity martin?

Is Ray Kurzweil a prophet for our future times...?

Nice shot

Intriguing juxtaposition, Martin - nicely seen and composed!

(I might bring highlights downs and shadows up a bit, could see her better.)

there is a really (really) strong interpretation in this .. I love the qualities of the photograph too, poetic and powerful, the old man and the sea kind of stuff.

Thanks Leon! Haha, technological singularity. Kurzweil might end up a prophet but I think Isaac Asimov with 'The Last Question' has him beat by a good 50 years

In case you're not familiar with this short story: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByoueGSWXluVVUtHYnRJVEg4YnM

What do I think? I think Isaac saw the future, he just didn't predict it'd be a damn soul-draining, society-killing, dehumanizing smartphone that would start the entire process

Hey Steve, thanks! I can't stand finding out later that I got myself a pile of shots with a dozen smartphones welded to people's hands but sometimes I think I get lucky where the phone is something that furthers a point. I only noticed the 'generational divide' because of the scooter

Thanks Sam! It's a work in progress, really, I added contrast at the last second in the hope that it adds a little starkness (was actually thinking along the lines of old man heading for the shadows vs new generation taking the spotlight), ultimately it might not be so necessary

Hahh! Damn Hemingway, that title of his novel popped up in my head as a base for coming up with a title.... old man and the kid; old man and something-something.... everything I could think of was just too corny. And so here we are, best left as an untitled image

Yes, this was a rare instance where I felt a bunch of different things at the time of taking the shot... old vs young, shadow vs light, the sea as some kind of metaphor in between. The cellphone for once was a pleasant suprise IMO

Thanks Ant!
