    Ever since I published this photo in 2007 I have seen this photo being used in thousands of web sites, magazines, cards, and posters. Sites like,,, Iranian's,, Australia's, and the list goes on.

    A child watching TV.
    This child is one of the millions of Americans who watch far too much TV.
    Actually, the real child hates TV and I had to take the picture quickly before the screen damaged his eyes since the Large TV was too close and watching a screen in the dark is even worse. He also got really bored since the TV screen had only a static.

    Four years later I did a remake of this:

    artchow, Bailh, jonbprime, and 91 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Hi This is a very good image. I do lots of small media collaborations, mainly for my own amusement. However, for a video I am creating, I need a number of images. I might be using this. Check here- John F. Groom
