Day 46: I've got an iPod. Doesn't everyone?

    Newer Older

    I almost never use this particular set of ear buds because they aren't very comfortable for my ears, but they do seem to be the status symbol these days. The hard part for me in this photo was getting the focus the way I wanted it with the lens wide open to F1.8 and no auto-focus. I took dozens of these before I got one that worked for me.

      One day, I just noticed loads of people with those things in their ears, and I tried to imagine what an un-Americanized Bushman, Aborigine, or Lakota would say upon seeing this...

      "I have seen, that the people of your tribe, they all have these strange white wires coming from their ears... is this how you listen to your God?"

      I was referred to your set by my friend, lablover47; interesting idea...

      Sometimes, I wear these with the sound off, to discourage strangers from striking up conversations with me.

      It doesn't work! (Especially among the elderly!)

      Thanks for posting this, though. I pointed to it in my blog post at Maniactive today. Cheers!
