Looking at Things #1

Since I'm yet a little hestitant to shoot street containing people actually noticing me shooting them, I concentrate on shooting them while they're busy. Preferably, while they are looking at something else. This is part one of a series I have in mind, of people being actually looking at things. Thus, I gave the series the title "Looking at Things". Part one is themed "Smartphones".

As always, C&C is much appreciated.

1) Everyone so Busy, taken near Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Russia

2) Sharing a View. Taken at Dublin Castle in Dublin, Ireland

3) Both sides matter. Taken at Zaryadye Park in Moscow, Russia

    People are so into their phones that you can get quite a bit closer without them noticing. I like the simple comp in #2.

    Yeah, phones seem to be hypnotizing devices. I just found the post "Strategies for street photography" linked from the sticky post in this forum, it actually makes me feel better with that I'm not alone with my thoughts :smile:

    Thanks for your feedback, Richard.

    Cheers,
    Can
