Analog vs. Digital Entertainment

A woman attempts to solve her Hello Kitty-themed Rubik’s Cube while most other passengers choose to be entertained by their smart phones.

In today’s digitally connected world, most people keep themselves occupied with their digital devices during their commute. They’d either be playing games, messaging friends or checking their social networks. Occasionally, there’d be a few reading a physical book, or solving  a Sudoku puzzle. It’s therefore surprising to see someone solving a Rubik’s Cube – a “Hello Kitty” themed one one at that.

I shot the above on my iPhone, and she and every one else were so engrossed that they didn’t notice anything. Maybe if I had pulled out a camera, I might be noticed more easily as I was very close to her. The shot is converted to B&W in Snapseed, no other adjustments were made. It’s slightly blurred due to camera shake but I don’t think that is a big deal here.

Anyway, we got seats later and she eventually succumbed to the digital revolution, and played with her tablet.
