A Contextual Textual Conversation


This slice-of-life was taken at the Gainesville, Florida airport.  The young man appears to be leaving on a jet plane as he has gone through security and is in the arrival/departure lounge.  The young lady, with whom I'd guess he is familiar, is in the area reserved for those who are awaiting someone's arrival or watching someone's departure. 

These two could not hear each other through the window, so voila! they were saved by technology and could "converse" through their smart phones.  It worked pretty well from what I could tell.

The smart phone being used by smart people and a smart photo taken by you. Smart decision, Lowell. :)

I think it would be more fun to look each other in the eye and use sign language.

What a fun shot. I see people do that from across the table at restaurants.

Today's world, indeed. Nice capture, Lowell.

Very creative!

The photo demonstrates a number of things about today's society: barriers between people and technology that helps circumvent a difficulty. A familiar scene that doesn't get seconds thoughts from us because it is so commonplace.
