Photographer's Note

I stopped at Sheep Meadow area to take a nap, after walking several blocks to get to Central Park. When I got there, I saw this girl texting like crazy. After maybe an hour of a pleasant resting moment, I woke up and noticed she kept doing the same thing. That forced me to shoot without asking :)

Text messaging, or texting, is a colloquial term referring to the exchange of brief written messages between mobile phones, over cellular networks. While the term most often refers to messages sent using the Short Message Service (SMS), it has been extended to include messages containing image, video, and sound content, such as MMS messages. Individual messages are referred to as "text messages" or "texts".

Text messaging is most often used between private mobile phone users, as a substitute for voice calls in situations where voice communication is impossible or undesirable. In some regions, text messaging is significantly cheaper than placing a phone call to another mobile phone; elsewhere, text messaging is popular despite the negligible cost of voice calls.
