I have a complicated relationship with cell phone cameras. I do, I admit it. Cell phones are the disposable cameras of modern society: omnipresent, multipurpose, and seldom used to create anything more than a rote account of what someone witnessed. And don't even get me started on selfie sticks.
On the other hand, one of the constant refrains from the many amazing pro photography essays and articles I read on a daily basis is "the best camera is the one you actually have with you." Which is true. When the sunset light bounced off a building last night and created a shadow of our waitress helping a nearby table, all I had time to do was fish my iPhone out of my pocket and capture the scene. It was the only way I would have ever gotten this image... the light, the scene, and the waitress were all gone in a moment.
In the end, I'm glad I captured this frame. Will I hold it in the same regard as my portrait work? No. But I guess I need to remember that art is in the scene - not necessarily in how it's captured.
