They are updating our mobiles at work. This is interesting to me for a few reasons. The main reason is my current one only works to talk on as a speaker phone. This has obvious drawbacks. It is also interesting because it means I have an upgraded "always with me" camera!
I will have 2 full megapixels vs the measly 1.3 I have now! I'm moving up in the world.
I'm being a little silly. It doesn't matter much which camera I use. I have fun either way. True, I tend to make a different style of picture with my phone than I do with my SLRs. And, true, I'd never do a set for someone else on a cell phone (unless someone wants to volunteer for an experiment!). But, I think I get some visually interesting stuff out of that crappy little camera. I have made prints, too, and the quality is reasonable. The images have an aesthetic about them that is difficult to match with a "real" camera.
To celebrate, and prepare to turn the old one in I dumped the pictures I have been making over the last few months to my computer. I opted to post a couple of the more detail oriented/abstract ones.
It was a good change of pace to work with these images tonight.
