    If my car breaks down I will borrow someone else's phone. Everyone has one now you know!

    Well I have no mobile phone and will never have one. To carry that little addictive drug around with me all the time. I do not see the point. I just love the looks on peoples faces when they want my mobile number and I don't have one. You are a oddity and either they stone you or love you.
    Funny isn't it when you go to a concert and are not allowed to take in a camera and every second person starts filmen holding up there little new love blocking the view and missing the concert.
    What I find intressting when photographing large format the reactions where sometimes they are pain and sometimes entertaining. Often I have older guys coming up to me asking if I use glass plates and they are disappointed when I say "No it's film".

    Well often I hear mobile phones can save lives. Just to see how many people drive cars concentrating on there phone calls. I don't know?

    I do sometimes pretend that my Weston Master III is a phone though... just to annoy people.

    I gotta try that.






    (disclaimer: I do have a plain vanilla cell phone - which people give me guff about too... "why don't you get an iPhone?").

    I have been asked if my Sekonic meter is a phone also. Then again, using a Meopta TLR in a park once, an onlooker was astonished they 'had such bright LCD displays back then'....

    Isn't it weird that when people only had landlines they would screen their calls on the answering machine, but with cell phones they always answer, even in the middle of a face-to-face conversation?

    I used have a cell phone. I lost it and didn't replace it. Sweet freedom!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I see—you need to get a darkcloth. You put it over your head, which sends a most polite signal to the onlookers. Underneath, you listen, search for a business card, and wait. At first, they may be puzzled, but eventually they get bored and go away. The odd ones who stay behind deserve some recognition for their level of interest. Pass a card now.
