A whale of a distraction

Photographer Eric Smith in Going Viral on Medium:

When I reviewed the pictures two weeks ago I was astounded by the juxtaposition of the young man immersed in his phone while this creature is feet away. Over the course of six shots showing the whale emerging and vanishing, he never looked up, even while the three other people on his boat were all excitedly looking right at it.

By the way, the exact same thing could happen if he was wearing a watch.

Also, this post would have been a great opportunity to launch a blog on his own site rather than publishing on Medium. Oh well.
