Over on Light Paths, Gary has a good article about iPhones and photography as a cultural activity. He compares the Kodak Box Brownie to todays iPhone.
On Friday I took delivery of my new iPhone 12. I have yet to put it through its paces. Having 3 lenses is a bit of game changer though. Not being able to move around very far, combined with the weather this weekend means limited picture making opportunities.
Here are two examples made so far. The new wide angle lens is indeed wide. So much so I need to watch where my fingers are in the frame.
Throwback Thursday, this time 12 months ago we were returning from a trip to NYC, via Los Angeles. At this point we had been in transit for 24 hours.
We had already lost a day by being forced to stay overnight in Los Angeles. A delayed flight was blamed.
Surprisingly we weren’t able to choose our seats at the ticket counter. Yet the aircraft had a large number of empty seats when we finally boarded.
At least we got two aisle seats which makes getting up and down on long haul flights a tad more comfortable. By the time we hit the tarmac in Melbourne we had been in transit for 3 days!
