Communicating face-to-face

I have decided that one of my more photographed subjects during 2012 will be “people.” Last year I became more relaxed when making photos of people “on the street” and many times would ask for their permission first if they cared if I used my camera. Sometimes they saw me first and asked me to take their picture. In this case, I saw these two young ladies talking on the street in Greensboro and used my telephoto lens to get up close. No, I did not seek their permission first. What the scene made me think of when I first saw it, is how much time these days people spend “texting” each other on cell phones, rather than standing face-to-face conversing. Our grandkids could learn a good lesson from this example.
