Asking a Lot

PHOTO PROMPT© Roger Bultot

Is the human in this exhibit entirely isolated?

Close examination of the objects behind the human demonstrates he has at least one companion.

So why doesn’t he ask a companion to capture his image?

He’d probably answer that doing the task himself gives him more pleasure than having assistance.

Does he also enjoy producing a lower-quality image?

His process is more important than the product.

Is this what humans call “living in the moment?”


Could one argue that obsession with immediate activity, without concern for its consequences, is causing their material shortages?

You’re asking a lot of this image.

  1. The image makes me think how small the humans can become when dominated by the technology they are using. I’d title it OVERSHADOWED BY MY PHONE!
