Just a simple candid street style Snapograph taken at London UK of a very common sight these days of someone totally engrossed in their cell phone texting.

Full marks for spotting the juxtaposition. But to my mind the inversion is a mistake.

Inverted images are common, and my reaction to them as a viewer tends to be similar. The mind spots that something is amiss, struggles for the reason, tries to right the image, and ends up dissatisfied.

I wouldn't want to outlaw inverted images (often containing reflections), but they can only work if the artistic function outweighs the whim. Here. as mostly happens, the whim is dominant, and the image trips over its own shoelace.
