I saw shot after shot, after shot that I desperately wanted to take pictures of but with no camera available except my smart phone. A tiny 3mp camera with no zoom or anything else for that matter.
In desperation and defeat I reached for my smart phone while feeling far from smart and desperately fired away, clicking at everything I had seen and desired as art.
I didn’t like the images I caught and after a second look with sun glare on the screen still felt disappointment at my feeble attempts.
It got me to thinking perhaps it is a good case for a new phone with a great camera built in, just in case? But would a better camera phone really have helped a perfectionist? I very much doubt it, the chances are it might only add to my frustrations as I may still be unable to capture the image I wanted and felt a bigger idiot for spending so much money on a camera phone as well.
My lesson here is buy a second DSLR of choice and leave it in the boot of my car for emergencies.
