A Cellular Demesne

Rule One in Photography; have a Camera.

ANY camera beats the one you had to leave behind.

I think that sums up the Cell Phone Camera's ecological niche'.

They are there with us always.

Virtually invisible devices, no one notices them being used.

They weigh almost nothing and take up no extra space.

Plus many will let you edit and upload images directly to the Web.


Because of their ubiquity there is a good chance any newsworthy event will be recorded.

I have no such Grand Designs.

I find them freeing.

From the Tyranny of Weight and Bulk.

And Playful.

One tends to shoot things one would never stoop to with a 'serious camera'.

In the Spirit of Freedom and Fun, welcome to my Liliputian demesne!!!!

HD7 straight OOC
The camera draw is more" camera phone" than the Nokia.
And that can be a GOOD thing with the right subject.
I like how phones running WP7 can be unlocked straight to camera by simply holding down the shutter button...
