You know I love street photography and this is one of the reasons one I love it. Seeing spontaneity infront of me and being surprised as it happen.

When I first saw this, I though it was just the ordinary people not minding their own business and wound rather look at others. In this case, the older guy looking at the younger guy’s phone. I thought it was funny yet very common nowadays. We live in the world where we think that other people are mare interesting that ourselves.

But when this happened, things got even more interesting. Suddenly something unusual is happening. Not only that they did the exact opposite, there s also the irony of the older fellow having interest on newer technology and the younger (2nd image) guy seeming to get the same interests in the more traditional newspaper. I find it funny and amusing this spontaneous things happen. This for me is what street photography means. This is the real essence of capturing life.
