I thought Howard Hughes passed? I think he is checking his stock portfolio, or possibly rating your photos!

Personally I've always thought about good street photography being so appealing because it never tells you the whole story, sometimes even having more than one lecture, being multidimensional, if you will; that being said, your picture is all that. Congratulations on a wonderful job!

Really excellent documentary street image Bob with impact and beautiful natural colors. A great find well spotted and captured. Congrats.

Statement On Our Time

The caption appears to be satire. He certainly is not a businessman using a laptop for his business. The laptop appears to be in a better state than rest of his possessions. His posture and the body language indicate that it is not a set up photograph. The image keeps me guessing what this man is doing with the laptop.

This picture however is certainly a statement on our times - the technology of the day and its reach. It is what a transistor radio was in the hands of a farm laborer in seventies.

Very interesting image, I wonder what he is doing on the laptop is he connected to the net or playing a game or what? oh well it does make me very glad I refuse to allow my daughter to chat in chat rooms on the internet! Great capture! Thank you for the feed back on my Lady Bug photo.

Awesome shot - Really would like to know the story behind it as your shot tells the audience a Story...

1) A bum got a stolen laptop.

2) Bum found a laptop in trash.

3) Or a Darker story which was aired on TV here in Calgary on Homeless people, one they found and interviewed happened to be a CEO of a company but due to gambling & drugs ended up picking Can..... Anyway Just Awesome 7/7

This caption is awesome.

I think that this guy found his laptop in trash. Looks like it is a very old model, as we can see parallel and serial port on the back of the laptop. It also seems that the cd-rom drive is missing (empty slot on the laptop side).

Great shot!

Just now ran into this.

How about "after the financial crisis" as a title?

Great catch!

I just could not stop laughing when I saw the thumbnail version and I just wanted to thank you for sharing this beautiful photo... I also like "after the financial crisis" idea for the title.
