Camera-less in Seattle

On Wednesday I drove to Seattle to pick up my Irish friend, Frank, from Sea-Tac Airport.  I didn’t bring my camera because I wanted to focus on being a tour guide and didn’t want picture-taking to “take me out of the moment”.   Anyway, that was a dumb idea.  I love my Nikon, and of course because I didn’t have it I found all kinds of things I wanted to capture forever.   So, I used what I had with me – my cell phone camera.  These are some random 3 megapixel images I found interesting.  Cheers!

    Camera phones are pretty good alternatives most of the time… 😀

    1. Yes – provided the lighting is decent, they usually take good shots.

    it seems that for some of us, cameraless is not an option!!! 🙂

    1. What would we do without our cameras, Ellen?? Too many cool things to capture! 🙂

    Fun stuff! Today’s phone cams actually take decent shots, even if the pixel count isn’t high — they’re much crisper than they were a few years ago.

    1. That’s true, John. Just 6 short years ago, I had a little flip phone that made all my pictures look hazy. Even though my current one isn’t the best, it’s way better than what I had.

    These are very intriguing compositions. Once you get accustomed to thinking in terms of photographic compositions it can be frustrating when you don’t have one available or are in a situation where you can not make use of one. Really enjoyed the quirkiness of the subject matter & overall tone of the sequence. It was lighthearted, but maintain quality of shots.

    1. Thank you, Elmediat – I did feel a bit frustrated. There were so many images I just couldn’t capture because I needed a zoom, faster lens, better light. Maybe next time I’ll bring my real camera!

  5. Jolene, I see that you were not camera less after all. You take interesting photos, I like them.

    1. Thanks, Martina! Sometimes I forget about my ever-present camera phone. 🙂
