Sunday 160


Monkey Man started me thinking about hands with his post today. He asks that we contain our thoughts in 160 characters.

Young hands with a world of exploration at their fingertips, hold a new piece of gadgetry. There is much they will have to learn about life, let alone a phone.

I think this will double up for Susannah's I Saw Sunday as well! Two birds with one stone, and all that!

  1. Life, yes, but they seem to absorb 'how to' knowledge through their fingertips on picking up a new piece of kit.

  2. Fast with their fingers and great knowledge with these new phones ect, but you are so right my friend about life.

  4. I think that picture must have been someone older or a novice - I've not noticed a younger person use anything but thumbs for a mobile device! Apparently, the Western thumb (on both hands) is evolving due to the way they are being used. Being ancient, I still touch type causing much hilarity to my kids. (Although, on a computer I still get a document written faster than they do)

  5. Earlybird - 'that picture' is of my 11 year old granddaughter, taken last Friday! So sorry to disprove your theory. It may be because she is using a touch screen, that the thumbs don't figure the same way...

  6. No worries! I suppose most of them have smartphones nowadays. However young. I'm rather out of date with that age group. Only one of my kids has just got a touch screen and she's 25! It's true on a touchscreen one doesn't use thumbs in the same way. But personally, I can't touch type either.

    What lovely nails your granddaughter has!

  8. That is a really beautiful photo Jinksy.

    I love the composition and the soft pinks throughout. A lovely non traditional portrait that captures a moment and your grand daughter very well. You have an excellent eye for a picture!

    As always thanks for linking to I Saw Sunday, it is always a pleasure to have you on board. :-) x

  9. She may be no thumbs, but I am all thumbs when it comes to such stuff! Amazing how quickly even the youngest can become adept at all this technology...it is their future, after all...
