Green light, New York City, New York, 2010

He has successfully managed to cross the vast expanse of Park Avenue, and the instant his foot touches the curb, he is at work thumbing his cell phone. Oblivious to all else, the call is what is on his mind. I used a 14mm superwideangle lens to stretch the scene here the man at the curb is virtually right next to me, yet the lens retains the sweep of the street markings and embraces the towering buildings on both sides of the avenue.

If he, or anyone, routinely texts while crossing Park Avenue, they may post their final text sooner than later.

Are you sure he started texting as soon as his foot hit the curb or was he texting the whole time he was crossing? Safety seems to be a secondary concern to those who text, whether crossing Park Ave. or driving in a car.
