THE BEST CAMERA IS THE ONE THAT IS WITH YOU – AGAIN

Back on 21 May 2007, I had mentioned that the best camera is the one that is with you…and now I’m saying it again. 

Here’s the link to the Article where I mentioned "The Best Camera is the one with you!"  This post recalls the time I hopped out of my car and got the photo of the very tall, interesting bike, and I took the shot with my carry around camera (a Canon Powershot).

I may have mentioned this back in 2007, but I was reminded about carrying around a camera all the time, from a Brooks Jensen podcast.  And, I’m sure this bit of advice has gone around, many, many times prior, by Photographers through the ages. 

Before that, I’m pretty sure that cave people were saying:

“Ugh!  The best wall carving tool is the one I have with me!  So where the hell did I put it?  I just saw an awesome takedown by a Saber Tooth, and I need to record it before I forget the details!”

Chase Jarvis recently came out with a book about THE BEST CAMERA philosophy, and he does a lot of work with the iPhone.

My carry around all the time camera is my SAMSUNG Phone.  It may only be 2MP, but it is sure better to take inspiring scenes with my Camera Phone than just making the “CLICK” SOUND with my mouth and have nothing to show for it:  Am I right or what!

I just wanted to finally put some of the photos I’ve taken with my SAMSUNG Phone Camera:

That’s all for now.  I see “photographs” (in my mind’s eye) all around me: It is a blessing when I have a camera with me, but it is a curse when I don’t.  However, now, I always have a camera with me, and it doesn’t matter that it is just my 2.1MP Phone Camera.

This was a nighttime shot.

I’m not sure why, but WordPress and Flickr still don’t play very nice together. I much prefer my WordPress photography journals and the format here. However, Blogger is much more compatible with Flickr. Sending my images to Blogger is flawless. Whenever I blog my Flickr images, I always get this text above the image:

.flickr-photo { border: solid 2px #000000; }
.flickr-yourcomment { }
.flickr-frame { text-align: left; padding: 3px; }
.flickr-caption { font-size: 0.8em; margin-top: 0px; }

I know, it’s not that big a deal; nevertheless, it’s kind of irritating! This text does not show up in my Blogger journal.

Oh well, because I like WordPress much more than Blogger, I’ll just have to put up with this little inconvenience until WordPress and Flickr play nicer together.
