'Older Texters'

Dave Chinn Loc: Streets of Kentucky
 
Taken on the streets of Bar Harbor, Maine. Anymore I refrain from taking images of people with cellphones, because its a common occurrence now days. However, I couldn't resist for the fact the two older ladies appeared to be together and possibly texting each other. That was my first thought, but declined to believe so. My intuition turned out to be correct as they were not together and ended up going separate ways. So, now the older crowd is the in crowd?

This is such an engaging photo, Dave. The gentleman appears to be thoroughly shopped out. Personally I think the ladies are chimping the cell phone photos they just took

Also fun to know this is Bar Harbor, where I have been visiting since I was a wee girl

Thanks rjaywallace !!! I thought about a reading, but figured I shouldn't go there, because there may be more info than I'd probably want to know about.

Thanks Linda !!! Yes, the gentleman seemed that way. They must have been on a bus tour, because the next evening we stoped for the evening in another town/city outside Bar Harbor and saw this couple inside the restaurant. It was crowded inside and supposedly so, for there were two tour buses in the parking lot. I found it awkward to remember and seeing this couple again. If I had not taken this image I would have not had reason to give notice.

I was in my Dr.'s waiting room a couple of weeks ago along with a lot of senior citizens doing the same thing as the two ladies.(Including me). These things can become very addictive. Not sure why they were named cell-phones. Seems like they should have been named pocket computers with a telephone.

Yes, they are addictive !!! I suppose most all of us are guilty, even me. Thanks for commenting with your doctor's visit.

Good capture, Dave,
Nope, texting isn't just for teens anymore!

It almost gives the impression as you said they are texting each other but about him
