What is wrong with this picture?

This image of people lining up at a bus stop opposite The Star casino might not seem out of the ordinary, yet, upon inspection, there appears to be something unusual about it.

Patrons attending a matinee performance are pictured lining up for a light-rail replacement bus afterwards, due to the track work on the line.

At first glance, there doesn't seem to be anything odd about the image but it becomes clear that none of those lining up are gazing at a mobile phone.

For many people, checking their phones while waiting for transport is a daily habit.

This collection of commuters - possibly exposing a generation gap - have decided to wait patiently for their bus to arrive.
