There’s something peaceful about being “plugged in” with your earbuds, plugged into your own world whether it’s your favourite playlist or an audio book. Blocking the world out to focus on being in the moment with your audio. Musing over song lyrics that are taking you back into the past, visualising the characters in a story you’re listening to. Personally I love to do both. With sensory issues it’s a sanity saver especially in public noisy places. The audio focus grounds you, blocking out distractions.
It’s a little ironic people are sat outside a health food shop eating fast food, while a poster is staring them in the face from across the road. At least there is a litter bin ready for them to walk over and dispose of their little in the proper way. People really are in their own world in public.
I think this image really suits colour and gives it more mood and depth. I usually edit for mono with my street photography work.
