Downtown Las Vegas – On a Friday night
If you have to explain…
I tell others that if they have to explain a pictures they maybe shouldn’t use it. It would be nice if I followed my own rules. I took this shot in Las Vegas last Friday night. It struck a cord with me.
Often we spend more time with our electronic devices than we do with each other. Yet we use them to “socialize” with others. I use the word we because I sometimes do the same thing. Instead of totally being in the moment, I am in the moment and on twitter, or looking at my email.
In the last few months I have tried to make sure that I never touch my BlackBerry while I am with other people. There is some value to being there all the way. When I am talking to someone and they are looking at their email, or twitter I always feel like I am alone. There have been times when I have been excited to see someone but quickly realized that I wouldn’t get a face-to-face conversation because the other face was looking at twitter. As if to tell the world what is going on, while leaving me out of the conversation.
Back to the photo. Las Vegas is not my kind of place. Look at the photo and the expressions on their faces, do they look happy?
