A Node Glows in the Dark, Hong Kong.

The Winner of the National Geographic Photo Contest in 2014 was the photo titled A Node Glows in the Dark which nabbed the top spot.
An eerie glow comes over the girl in the center of the photo, who’s consumed by her smartphone. It’s the sign of the times.
The photographer of that image, Ben Yen of Hong Kong, told National Geographic, “I feel a certain contradiction when I look at the picture. On the one hand, I feel the liberating gift of technology.
On the other hand, I feel people don’t even try to be neighborly anymore, because they don’t have to.”
