Fantastic street shot! Well done.

The world has gone mad with all the impersonal communication. A month ago our nanny resigned via text message! "Thanks for everything..." What happen to a phone call, to a visit, even email????? And here this shot drives me crazy! How? Reflection, post? But don`t tell me, I`d rather not know :)
8 Apr 2009 5:25am
Yes, it really is an art.
8 Apr 2009 6:23am
Wow, this is absolutely amazing! The captured scene! The tones. Everything!
8 Apr 2009 6:45am
Love the quote - so perfect with your photo.
8 Apr 2009 6:47am
Wordless ... a true piece of art ... congrats Sharon!

Great message and excellent photo.
8 Apr 2009 7:38am
Heh. Brilliant as always :)
8 Apr 2009 7:45am
Such a nice quote so well illustrated. Great shot!
8 Apr 2009 8:08am
excellent capture !
8 Apr 2009 8:13am
Very clever thing to do! Nicely captured!!!
8 Apr 2009 9:57am
WOW! How dangerous could that be? Great shot with perfect framing.
8 Apr 2009 10:16am
très très fort !!!!!!!! ;))) I LOVE ........ ***********
8 Apr 2009 10:20am
what an absolutely fantastic shot, really impressive. The detail can keep you looking for ages.
8 Apr 2009 11:15am
Looks like a police officer, it would be a different kettle of fish if us civilians were caught doing that. The scene behind looks like something from a Blade Runner movie or the book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep"
8 Apr 2009 11:18am
Nice capture. Great timing.
8 Apr 2009 11:19am
An artist ! :-)
8 Apr 2009 11:23am
8 Apr 2009 11:35am
great shot !
8 Apr 2009 11:38am
I do not reach to guess if it is a reflection of neon of a showcase, or you are photographing through a crystal… in any case is wonderful.
I will be some days was by vacations. To the return I will return to happen through your blog.
8 Apr 2009 11:40am
Oh!!! Great shot! Timing, compo, frame and unusual scecne... the art of photography. A movie scene!
Brilliant idea and great technical control.
Impersonal communication or other way of communication???
This is so busy and hectic a modern reflection, people tend to gauge their popularity by electronic chatter. The art of conversation is being lost, I always enjoy the facial expressions the little smile to lose this is to lose ourselves.
8 Apr 2009 11:50am
Wonderful shot Sharon! A powerful statement on today's society. ;-)
8 Apr 2009 11:54am
@Eric Cousineau: Thank you Eric. Yes....I feel the art of conversation has fallen through the cracks and has now become a series of IM's and text messages. But I suppose at least we are all still talking, even if in spurts.
8 Apr 2009 12:18pm
Perfect quote. Couldn't have said it better myself..and the perfect image paired with it. Excellent!
8 Apr 2009 12:20pm
I agree what ever happen to simple conversation. Technology has is purpose. We just tend to take it to far sometimes. A well caught example. And we wonder why the law for wearing helmets. Sheeeesh. An other dynamic image Sharon.
8 Apr 2009 1:03pm
Superb shot, and a great message behind it. I like the overlayed typography, too.
8 Apr 2009 1:04pm
Oh, my goodness. I've seen people text while driving. Hate to see that, but love your capture.
8 Apr 2009 1:24pm
awsome documentary image, it say's so much! Bravo!!
8 Apr 2009 1:28pm
Dynamite capture and composition, Sharon; perfect timing. That quote certainly brings one up short!
8 Apr 2009 1:36pm
A brilliant composition. And the addition of fun factor is just making it so delightful to look at.
8 Apr 2009 2:23pm
Excellente composition! J'espère qu'il n'y a rien devant son chemin, car elle prend des risques en écrivant un texto sur son portable tout en roulant à vélo! :O)
8 Apr 2009 2:46pm
An Urban scene of the XXIst century :) Well done
8 Apr 2009 2:50pm
A shot in a million - well seen and photographed.
8 Apr 2009 3:08pm
I think this is similar to the art of texting and driving which I've seen people doing. This is a wonderful street scene. Love it.
8 Apr 2009 3:15pm
To be overtaken by the art of Photography, Signature Sharon ;)
8 Apr 2009 4:04pm
I always have the question how they manage this - great moment
8 Apr 2009 4:08pm
Very cool! I can't do these taks at the same time!
8 Apr 2009 4:11pm
I have seen people (only women for some reason) testing while driving. Totally oblivious to the world around them. Very scary.
8 Apr 2009 4:22pm
Awesome shot...just at the right moment...Very nicely done :)
8 Apr 2009 4:38pm
no one said it's illegal to text while biking! And the composition you've got here is excellent! Love the framing too with all the details combined into this magnificent photo!
8 Apr 2009 4:55pm
Nice and amazing catch, we have many things to see here, I mean the foreground is the subject, but the backgound is also very intersting and doesn't compete with the main subject.
I like the symbolic repetition of OOOO ;)
8 Apr 2009 4:59pm
I love the vantage point from which this photo was taken. I first thought this may have been an "old" shot until you pointed out the texting. The quote from Judith Martin is sooo true.
8 Apr 2009 5:02pm
Amazing! It would have been great even without the bike rider but with the rider texting as bikingit is even more perfect!

This beautiful image perfectly complements your vision of live Sharon
I like it ...
8 Apr 2009 9:20pm
I love this image. As I've said... typography... love it. In this case I'm bewildered. I can't imagine how it would be a reflection or if there's glass beyond the fence. Stop this and tell me! Whew! Sorry... I really do love the compo on this very much. I guess I don't have to understand everything.
9 Apr 2009 1:38am
@Mike Paulison: Well Mike, the secret is in my tags... =D
reading mike's comment here.. since it's tagged as billboard, i still can't imagine how this billboard reflection came to be.. it's really mind boggling! lol! excellent capture! :D
9 Apr 2009 3:49am
@rian: Ah but rian...I did not write 'reflection' in the tags though :-)
Wonderful capture!! Fantastic composition and moment in life captured in a beautiful way..... Love it!
9 Apr 2009 5:00am
well he has a helmet, he can afford texting :-)
Very nice B&W, a great atmosphere in the picture
9 Apr 2009 5:24am
what a skill, great capt
9 Apr 2009 9:19am
Great composition. TExting while riding. That's interesting!
9 Apr 2009 11:53am
Outstanding capture - what a great moment. And I love the background - like Mike/Rian I'm trying to fathom how on earth you've done this! Just wonderful, Sharon.
9 Apr 2009 12:49pm
just plain cool!
9 Apr 2009 2:42pm
faaabulous find!! brilliant BC!!! top notch!!!
9 Apr 2009 3:35pm
Oh my gosh-the perfect capture!
9 Apr 2009 7:04pm
Must be a really important message and the person must be in a real hurry, otherwise they'd stop to text...? Right...? But obviously the message isn't quite important enough to warrant a phone call.
10 Apr 2009 5:58am
really interesting shot! the billboard gives the illusion of those plexi-glass encased overpasses in Vegas... nice work!
10 Apr 2009 8:45am
Helmet's probably a good idea in this situation.
I love all the graphic elements here. It's an urban cacophony that the bike rider seems to have tuned out completely.
12 Apr 2009 4:04pm
Very clever catching her under the sign. Besides,she is quite cosmopolitan by texting and riding......isn't she?
13 Apr 2009 11:27pm
Great ... i love it !
17 Apr 2009 10:26pm
Not everyone can text and ride in B/W : ] best...jerry
