What people do?

Beautiful sunny summer day in Uppsala. Lot of people on the streets and by the river enjoying the sun. Meanwhile, watching these pictures before posting, I realized that many of them are stuck with noses in their mobile phones... Well, I guess it is sign of the times...

And when they get home they turn on the TV and stare for hours at another screen, whilst checking their phones and tablets at the same time!
Here I am in bed with a cup of tea, staring at my tablet screen!
Crazy world, but you take great pictures of it Emilia.

Yes this is so common now, dangerous at times....along our seafront promenade now is a dangerous place to walk you find yourself avoiding being crashed into by people either lost in conversation or just not looking where they are going.......conversations in restaurants really annoy me, and yes people just don't talk to each other. I love my IT but in the right place!!!L Your captures show that so many people seem to be unaware of the beauty around them.

Great series! What's crazy to me is to see a group sitting at a table in a restaurant & everyone of them is busy with their little devices, rather than enjoying each other's company. Recently, on a walk, at the city pier, I'd estimate 90% of the people on the pier were engrossed in their "smart phones".......WHy they even leave their homes, is a mystery to me!?!?!? Sheesh!

Amen & Amen.....I keep hoping all this "smart phone" mania will go the way of the "hula hoop" & people will return to relating with one another, in a more personal, face-to-face fashion, however it is nice to have a way with which to chat & share with people, world wide, like we do here on PB!
I guess seeking a balance is the difficult part......right???(((grin)))
Happy Weekend!
