Photo detail

The cell phone rang again and again in the silence. No one answered. After minutes of silence, it rang again.
Over and over and over it rang — but the hand that held the phone did not move. Tragically, its owner could no longer raise the phone to his ear. He had died in a car crash caused when he texted a message.
