Tribal Mural

This young lady had more important things on her mind than admire the interesting tribal mural on the wall at Houston Street.

So have you ever been so engrossed with your electronic gadgets that your miss what is around you?

You can bet your life I have!

She looks a little like Kate Beckinsale from that angle.

cela rend très bien, et donne une très belle composition avec cette dame et son téléphone portable
it is very well productive, and gives a very nice composition with this lady and its mobile phone

Beautiful shot, practically a B&W in colors. Very well caught.

This is possible only with a single gadget: my camera, and I use it to catch what is around me. The only way I miss something is when I'm shooting in another direction. It happens.

Bellissimo. You, knowl. She must be living there so she can afford to walk absent minded in front of this mural. Probably she passes every day...
I hardly miss anything since I started my blog!

Fab photo and great art work. I love yesterday's picture, the clock is wonderful. Hope you are well

Oh I like that mural!

I've made it a point never to walk while busy with my cellphone or camera. Good way to get robbed or run over here.

YES! Have gotta quit talking on cell phone while driving (guilty!) Lovely picture of both mural and pedestrian.

That's a beautiful mural. Where on Houston is it? I can't believe I've never seen it...

Daryl said...

I''m with Vogon Poet, the only gadget that I'm preoccupied with is my camera and it's made me hyperfocus on EVERYTHING! Cell phone? Hmmm is it on the charger or in the car? I never know or care.

Sorry Ming, forget to comment on how much I love this photo. So graphic and strong. Too bad she missed it all.

Oh, wow..that's gorgeous!

I try to keep the electronic gadgets to a minimum. I have a basic cell phone, and a Blackberry for work that I rarely check.

Oh yes, of course. Electronic cameras in particular -:)
