Hi Tech - Project Black #8


Am I grasping at straws now or what? For this I didn't even go outside. I had to go as far as my pocket today. Here you see my new (a few months new) Blackberry Pearl. Far more than I need but I gotta say it's fun. Not that I get a slew of emails, but now all my spam gets forwarded to me where ever I am. And the internet on a phone? Who would have thought about this stuff 10 years ago? I took about a dozen shots that all looked like something that belonged in a T-Mobile ad. This last one, in which you can barely see it was my favorite. Perhaps I'll venture outside for my next Project Black post.

Your photo is surpisingly well-balanced for such an asymetrical composition. I really like it!!

You ventured outside the box with this one. All the white makes the black2berry stand out more. Nice composition.

Blackberry just keeps popping up everwhere of late, i didn't even know what a "Blackberry was till about a month ago, (must live a sheltered life)!! Great shot Robert. I have put the link for the collages up for you today, have fun:0)

Interesting. Very different than what I usually expect from you. Not sure how I feel about it. This may be partly because I am so out of the loop of the real world that I don't have a cell phone and have never seen a blackberry. Maybe there's a social message in the expanse of white around the blackberry. I sometimes think that all the communication available these days actually isolates us in some ways. Look at you, you went and made me think!

Show off!

Today I was in a conversation which appalled a young person. My phone makes phone calls. It can text, but I don't know how. If I paid more it would send me email, but I leave the house to get away from the net .... It can take photos, but the quality sucks. It has a calendar and a calculator which I use from time to time. But mostly I just make phone calls. And since it's my cell phone, I don't answer it -- or even look to see who is calling -- when I am off having fun and don't want to be bothered. It is for MY convenience, not for the convenience of those who would put tabs on me.

Did I miss label my blackberry shot Tuesday - it looks nothing like this! LOL!

Great shot Robert!

Love your composition and the fact that only a bit of the phone is showing...here's me using an ancient cell phone which suits me perfectly :)
But I love to hear about new technology (too bad it comes with spam too !

It's as if the Blackberry is playing peekaboo - more implied than seen.

I find it hard to run out for milk without a phone these days, I can't imagine how my parents felt when I was 20 and backpacking through Europe on my own, with no way to reach me or even know what country I was in!

Chuckles. I see what you mean about us posting about the "same" things! I just had some of mine on my cereal...yummy!

I like it a lot... a simple shot for a complex item. I almost shot my phone, too, lol... but it's a fairly boring model.

Shelly said...

Headed off-grid today...I don't think I want one of those - I kinda like being unplugged every once in a while.

Great attention-grabbing black shot. I like it.

Jenty said...

LOL, very imaginative!
