As much as I lust after a dSLR and as much as I love my not-a-dSLR-but-still-ok-really camera, most of my photographs end up being snapped on my iPhone. For no other reason than because it’s there. Like always there, never out of my hands.
I chastise myself for both of these things, and I really should take more ‘proper’ photos of Beans that hold up to being printed or enlarged but the iPhones camera is actually pretty good y’know? I have thousands of random photos, the inside of my pocket, blurred shots of I’m not sure what and tonnes of things that I deem interesting enough to stop and focus on at any time of the day.
If it wasn’t for my phone then I would have missed capturing this frankly magical moment while enjoying a cup of tea in my garden last spring.
So, iPhone camera, I thank you for being not so bad really (and for enabling me to take photos of copulating insects) and for being quite rather good sometimes at close ups. My entry for the gallery could be nothing other than a phone shot, testament to how much I use it and the fact that my proper camera is at home gathering dust. I’m wishing that I had bought my macro lens with me though – if you have a phone with a half decent camera, buy one, they’re the best things ever!
