Is the screen too small, are your fingers too big? How do I get this thing Online?
Sorry for my long absence. I can't seem to break my rule for myself that if the image isn't very current then it should fit the theme and of course if it can be both, like many of Claude's images, it is best of all. So modern isn't my thing. While i wait for it to warm up enough to work in the yard, I'm updating photo files and playing with old images and the month is GONE! Ill try to at least get through the theme images
Mobile phones are certainly modern technology, so this photo fits perfectly to the theme. The expression of the man shows that he has challenge in reading the screen. Maybe it is due to small text or the contrast is not good enough in the light conditions he has. A nice daily life photo from our time.
That's exactly how I also proceed :). It is my portrait .

Modern technology can be daunting to the senior citizen...:) We're caught in between. Not old enough to be ignorance about it, but not getting use to it fast enough. I only got the smart phone a few year later than the younger people...and I only know enough what I needed to do, other function are still a mystery to me...I use most for text and call, camera and video. That was it.
plimrn (2019/05/02 17:46:12): I love your new post!.
That's how we look! The letters are too small or it's impossible to see what is on the screen due to the weather. Remarkable street photography! I got an iphone for the previous Xmas, and it's really a computer, but Ican live a day without looking at it.
plimrn (2019/05/02 17:49:27): I can't even get my phone to transmit my voice unless my lips are on top of the speaker, which means I often end the call with my nose! Given the crowd present in the Pantheon's piazza, I got lots people shots
A photo which made me smile. Some days ago I bought a new smartphone and day for day I'm struggling with all its features and possibilities. The face of this old gentleman speakes volumes. A wonderful portrait and a photo which tells a little story. I like it very much!
Greetings from springlike Germany!
plimrn (2019/05/02 17:53:54): I'm amazed at how many people admit to struggling with technology. Perhaps one has to be born into it. I got my granddaughter on the computer before she was two; her generation seems much more comfortable with technology.
We wouldn't know :-) Maybe he makes a selfie - haha. Okay I doubt it. He looks a bit worried, maybe he tries to find a street with his navi system and can't read it properly. I like the tool but I hate how it is over-used to the point it is rude towards others. It is also scary that small children HAVE to use it for school class building Whatsapp groups kind of you're either in or out etc. I often see folks on the cell while paying for their coffee not talking to the one that serves you coffee. The list is endless. I think it needs a new Code of Ethics for cell phone behavior. Fun image and also a social study ... so much we could write about.
plimrn (2019/05/06 17:13:58): Probably not of that face! There are certainly both good and bad things about this level of connectivity
the flagrant is very funny and very representative of this generation facing smartphones.
like a sphinx: decifre me or I will devour you. this is the meaning of the image. excellent quality.
I am not the best in technology, but I try to use, sometimes we are obligated to use them, like whatsup and FB.
