Baker Park was almost crowded on this beautiful July evening.  But if you looked at the folks walking around or sitting on the benches and bleachers you would find few watching the sunset, most of them were intently staring at their cell phones.

They were participating in an augmented reality game called “Pokemon GO.”  I wasn’t (and probably won’t) play the game, my bit of augmented reality was watching everyone else walk around with their eyes glued to tiny screens.

  1. If you told them the sunset was beautiful, they would probably Google “sunset” and watch on their small screens.

  2. Sad, but true. Great picture!
