Friday in Black and White – Addicted to mobile phone

The mobile phone is indispensable in the life of each of us. It has caused more and more addiction. At home, at work, on the street it is a continuous presence in our lives.

Addiction to the mobile phone has brought to the humans a new   phobia. It is known as  nomophobia that is manifested by an intense feeling of fear and anxiety felt when the mobile phone is forgotten at home or in the office, when the device is out of the signal area, when it is out of battery or the credit is over.

“It is hard to understand addiction unless you have experienced it.” Ken Hensley

  1. I feel safe when I carry my mobile phone because I can rely on it in case of emergency, especially when I’m alone. I don’t feel the urge of having/using it when I’m with someone.
    I’m not truly addicted, but I could be, to some extent.

  2. Human’s are often reliant on tools. We don’t have claws that rip and tear. We don’t have teeth that scare. We are fast like tigers. We can’t swim like dolphins.

    So we rely on tools. The question is always is this tool bad.

    I think from an information perspective the cellphone is changing the world.
    From a distraction perspective, I suspect there is a growing problem.

    I guess I am on the fence about this.

  3. Black and white are still one of the best presentations of photos.

    Thank you for sharing this new term. Personally, I am not very attached to my phone.

  4. Another powerful photo. I am not addicted to my phone, or anything else. But many are, I see it every day. Very sad and many times they are unaware of their addiction.
