Members of our Chicago community fellowship program met to discuss healthcare issues at John Stroger Hospital on the near Southwest side last week. During a break from the meeting, many of us scrambled to check our email and phone mail messages, as we usually do. The cell signals were not great in the building, so we had to stand by the windows. I turned the corner and thought this scene was quite funny... There was also quite a snowstorm blowing outside that morning, as you can see.

And you got them all to wear different coloured bright clothing. You couldnt have set this up any better.

Great candid shot, each one doing thier own thing, and they each have thier own window! Perfect timing!

F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C shot Mike!

It looks like you staged it with the different colored clothes and the weird symmetry.

Nice frame! Looks like it should be an album cover or something.

I love Heidi's comment! I guess I am so out of it because I hardly ever use my cell -- even for telephone calls!

great image Mike, it looks like a still from cell phone commercial, it couldn't be staged any better

Amazing how they just lined up for you!

Great image. Everywhere across the country, folks either have phones to their ears or puffing on cigs. I'll take clean air and silence. Very good capture of a modern scene, nice color and human interest.

I love this one. Way to go with camera at the ready!
