You know the feeling, groggy, cranky, lacking caffeine and food. You push open the door to the local coffee dispensary and wait while the young shiny-pressed career person in front of you orders some mocha-latte-Americano-expresso thing. “Large coffee, black, no room for cream and one of those greasy sugar crusted doughnut things please.”
Facebook is fun. I liked it a lot. But I’m leaving it today. I’ll miss its incessant notifications, all the “likes”, weather reports, smiling birthday notifications and spooky adds about stuff I just looked at elsewhere a few hours ago; everything bouncing around in an attention grabbing silo created by some powerful invisible algorithm designed to keep my eyeballs locked on it, way beyond…

In all honesty it’s probably the orange background as much as anything that makes this a fun portrait. I was sitting next to this guy at lunch and took a quick shot of him him at work with his tablet computer, his cell phone AND his laptop. Food was nowhere in sight but he seemed perfectly happy to do without it.
