And here is the moment that we can identify in the evolutionary path where humans began to lose their vocal chords and started to grow second thumbs, narrower in size and somewhat more dextrous as if specifically designed for small keyboards.

A great capture of a sad reflection on our current society.

Everything has all become a little too immediate.

like: it is raining; just went to the toilet; eating pizza; walking down the street; taking a selfie...

Darwin's theory of evolution at work.

Thanks for the comment, very clever.

You are not wrong, they did not have the faintest inkling. I was only a couple of metres away, and I took my time.

And I imagine some people kiss their phones "good night" before they go to bed. (Or even worse, take it to bed with them )
Thanks

Sadly, your skill to cleverly string together words which read well and make sense, I fear, will be lost in only a few generations time.

I'd like to have smaller and more dexterous hands! It would make it easier to operate my camera!

That's OK, as long as it doesn't go much further than a kiss
