Too Much Technology by: reagan scott

Whether alone or in a crowd, a phone can easily soak up one's attention.
Even at a social event, one can be more drawn to a small device rather than forming relationships and making memories with those who are around.

Although this child looks as if he is outside where he should be playing with his friends, he is instead standing alone, indulging himself into whatever is on the phone.

In this photograph is a girl who looks to be sitting on a park bench outside. Although this is the case, she is instead focused only on her phone, avoiding the scenery and any possible social interaction.

The guy pictured in this photograph seems to be sitting outside in a public area. He is not around nor interacting with anyone. Instead, he is giving all of his attention to his phone and what it may hold.

The use of cellular phones can take away from spending quality time with friends.
