Welcome to my site.
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 here’s another one.
I’m amazed at the ever increasing number of photographs in circulation, mostly down to the modern camera phone. People can record those special moments and share them with relatives and friends, easily and quickly, often as events are unfolding. This was not possible before the camera phone.
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……
The camera in their phone is all many people will need. Having it with them all the time encourages them to take pictures. Easily accessible WIFI and increasing mobile data allowances facilitate image transmission and sites like Facebook provide a platform for sharing. It all fits together and it’s making photography more popular than ever.
Someone once said and it’s often repeated, “The best camera is the one you have with you”. Well nowadays it’ll probably be a phone.
Like everyone else I use my phone to take pictures but nearly all the images you see here will have been taken using a camera.
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.
