Roll: thanks - so was the girl. Quite oblivious to everything but her machine.

Fortunately, some maintain human contact :)

Since we have a lunch theme going: this was at lunch, couldn't see who it was that deserved such undivided attention which i thought would be interesting to capture. Not a cellphone in sight at that table, unlike other tables btw which, oddly enough, primarily featured older women showing off the grandchildren to eachother or something. At the table next to me they finally stowed their phones at one point, only to finish up an leave.

If you want your kids to use a cellphone responsibly, set a decent example, i say. Like giving somebody your "undivided attention"...

The cell phone discussion reminds me of a couple of my own shots, that I probably posted somewhere on LuLa before.

In the first, three people are actually reading books on a bench in New York.

Then five minutes later, same bench...

The answers' clear, Eric: they saw you snapping as they held their decoy books, and then pulled out their cellphones to catch you next time! It's clearly a social game.

There are eyes everywhere!

But one of the three didn't realize she had timed out on her book.
Is it partly a gender thing?   ;)

Tell you what, Eric: I'll get her a new dress and see where we can go to renew our old collaboration, but beware: old models may have developed new friends! I don't want to face that glassy stare at the wrong moment.

However, that said, perhaps dedicating a few hours to her on the iPad camera will fool her somewhat, rekindle a sentimental streak she may still retain! Truth to tell, she sits behind me whenever I'm at the computer, a silent critic of everything else she sees.

Well, there's something putrid in the state of.

I shot a couple of snaps on the iPad today, but for some reason they won't fly across to my computer.

I get the picture into the iPad's Photos gallery, click on it, see the box with the upwards arrow, click it, put in my e-mail address and click SEND. Zilch. It's been woking okay so far - witness the girl with her cellphone to her ear - but today - zero. I sent myself an e-mail from the computer to check it's working, and that got through... perhaps it's Nikon laying down the law and demanding I use their product again for this stuff, and that I stop flirting with the apples! I definitely saw no snakes.

Maybe there's a moral there about convenience, laziness etc. But lunch was good, anyway.

There may even be some security plot working in the Windows computer to distance Apple products, stop them getting in! Nothing would surpise me anymore. It's the age in which we live.

It's good to see that the genes carry the talent.

That's harsh: I don't believe my wife even knew Leiter! In any of the senses. I was far too careful to give her cause for vengeance - I think.

Seriously, though, I think she might have made a good job of it - my daughter - as fashion photographer; a least she'd have had a good idea what it entailed. Maybe that was the trouble! Knowing too much can prevent mistakes... what's that thing about the sins of the father being visited upon the sons?

But she made her own way, had her family, got both girls through university and into good prospects, and that's what counts at the end of it all. Not that it's the end yet, I trust!
