Some time ago I read the opening to a new photography site where the first line posed the question, “Does the world need another photography site?”. The answer was probably not, but the site was published anyway. Now there’s another one.
I started shooting on slide film, in 36 exposure rolls, when every press of the shutter cost money. Contrasting this with today I’m amazed at the ever increasing number of photographs in circulation – mainly due to the modern camera phone. Everyone can record those interesting moments in life that in the past would’ve simply faded away.
Who thought of putting a camera into a phone? They could have put a laser pointer, a spirit level, maybe a laser distance measure into it, but no. Someone thought – let’s put a camera into that phone! And when the camera phone met the Internet…..
Photography now is more popular than ever. Someone once said and its been repeated many times, “The best camera is the one you have with you”. Well the camera you have with you will probably nowadays be a phone!
Now, welcome to my site. Thank you for taking the time to visit. As all such sites, it is destined to be always a work in progress and I will frequently update with fresh images so please call again.
