Ocean Park in Hong Kong

In the last 10 years, mobile data, smart phones and social networks have forever changed our existence. Although this woman stood at the center of a jam packed train, but the warm glow from her phone tells the strangers around her that she's not really here. She managed to slip away from here, for a short moment, she's a node flickering on the social web, roaming the earth, free as a butterfly. Our existence is no longer stuck to the physical here, we're free to run away, and run we will. Photo was taken on a 5 min. capt. Nemo ride connecting two playgrounds in Ocean Park in Hong Kong.
