Notice how there are quite a few people sitting on this wall in fairly close proximity to one another. But unless they happen to be together like the the little boy and his mom or the ladies standing with the big purses, they might as well be worlds apart. Personal space is a catch phrase for ‘don’t get too close to me!’ today. I am all about personal space; I get a little bit rankled at the store if someone stands too close to me in the checkout line and heaven forbid should their cart get too close or even – gasp – touch me.
We human beings (or meat popsicles; whatever you wish to call yourself) have become adept at carving out our own space bubbles and ignoring what’s around us even when we are in a crowd. I think the explosion of electronic devices and mobile phones has enabled this greatly. BTW – you’ve got to love the socks on the guy in red 🙂
(Bonus points for anyone who can tell me what movie I just quoted)
I think they are trading personal space fo a place to sit. Personl space is a good thing. You quoted a Police song, but I didn’t get the movie quote. Happy Weekend. 😀
As in “I’m willing to sit this close to you which I normally probably wouldn’t because I’m tired and need a shady spot to sit down”….. and while I did do the Police song it’s a movie line I’m referring to 🙂
Can’t help on the movie line. Sorry 😦
I cannot believe no one has watched that movie other than me and my family.
You’re unique =)
Why, yes! Yes I am 🙂 🙂
This seems to be a city sickness, seen on almost any bus stop around the world today, sad to say. I tried to cheat and googled your quote line but couldn’t find the film, only your blog comment. 😉 😀
What gets me is when people who are obviously together are still “apart” by being attached to their phones! Here is a hint: It’s from a strange Sci-fi movie 😉
One more hint please; US made or maybe English?
American movie but a French director. Set in future involving a cab driver.
Could the French director be Luc Bresson? And Bruce Willis is the cabdriver? In the fifth element?
If not, I need another little hint, please. 😉
Tosses confetti! She did it 🙂 The Fifth Element is the movie.
Hahaha meat popsicles 😂 I prefer to call myself that now
Good for you 🙂 lol
What a cool capture! I am all about personal space too…but this is really interesting how everyone is physically near each other but not mentally…they seem to be doing their own thing.
Thanks! Amazing isn’t it how they are “seperate”.
Thank goodness it is not the movie I was thinking about: Wolf Creek 😉
No, as Dina guessed it’s from The Fifth Element 🙂
