Richard has taught you well, Young Man.
Chris: Most of what he has taught me is unrepeatable..
Presque tous avec leur téléphone.
Chris: In the old days we would interact with people face to face Martine. But nowadays..

HAHA- This is an exemplary English queue!
Chris: No one would dream of breaking it..

Brilliant! I like the almost uniform personal space around each person and how most are staying at their phones. Were they queuing to each have 30 secs in your company?
Chris: No they were waiting for a bus

Very English - the spacing, Chris
Chris: Isn't it wonderful Lisl, body language at its best
Oh, how fun, Chris. Brilliant.
Chris: Only in the UK..
About third of them are looking at their phones. This must be an economically deprived area
Chris: Yes - the centre of Bath

grin I think in 20 years some of these people will have problems with their necks and can only look at their shoes....
It is a brilliant picture though.
Chris: This is the new generation who have to go to WORK soon to SUPPORT old pensioners in their declining years Astrid..

I like this one Tiff, it works well with the different bands of people, huts and abbeyness. Not everyone is on social media at this moment but you have caught quite a few.
Chris: This is the way things are Chad, I express no opinion
Lovely geometry, and I love the gaps between - your space/my space!
Chris: Thank you David. Aren't people fascinating

I have to admit this is my sort of photograph ...and so is brilliant ... I expect some brilliant guy from the east of England was the catalyst for this shot . I think you would have another brilliant composition if you cropped out the church building. It would then have a very enigmatic feel to it.
Chris: Goddamn you, you're right about cropping out the abbey..

Oh, I thought these were all of your grandchildren waiting at Croome to give their illustrious forebear a hug on his septuagenarian celebrations.
Chris: No not at all Louis, these are children, or near abouts, waiting to catch a bus to the university
Back packs and mobile phones are certainly the in thing round your way. I agree with Richard about the crop of the church by the way, it strengthens the shot no end.
Chris: I was too STUPID to realise that compositional fact at the time of editing Brian..
Only about half looking at their phones - a low percentage IMHO.
Chris: My opinion too..
It almost appears that each individual has a designated spot in which to stand. Love it!
Chris: The subject of the shot is personal space Bev

How orderly!

And all those phones - certainly a sign of the times.
Chris: If we'd seen this image 20 years ago we wouldn't really have known what to think..
