I’m the driver when we take Mom or Dad to see Doctors. Today it was Coney Island Hospital. Most of the campus is in disarray due to repairs of damage from hurricane Sandy. The Tower building, one of the newest one’s, wasn’t damaged.
These ladies were having a smoke and chat in front of the sign saying “no smoking within 15 feet of this sign.”

I am sharing two lily photos because I was inspired by Vladimir Brezina’s post — Lilies
Vlad’s blog is usually much more ambitious and all his posts are worth a visit.
The first of my lilies was taken with my iPhone 4 and edited in the phone. I am so impressed with what’s possible in today’s smart phones. The other one is a Panasonic LX3 shot — I’m on the LX7 now — a great series of cameras in a compact form. A fine machine to put in your pocket for not much out of pocket.

When I visit Brooklyn to help my wife care for her elderly parents, I often visit Coney Island. I take my “real camera” and my iPhone. The Hipstamatic shots I take work well. That AP seems designed for Coney. The beautiful beach and funky boardwalk the crowds and fast food — the rides — all great subjects for me and my non-camera with its creative APs.
I learned a lot about using my iPhone for photography from Dan Burkholder. Dan is a deep well of knowledge and a great resource if you want to learn the skills for great iPhone work.
Here are some samples of my iPhone images:
The creative potential of the phone with these APs is vast. Resolution is adequate for large prints (11 x 14″ at least). Wide angle and macro lenses are available (I have a nice set– $69) so the only camera I need is on my iPhone.I have an iPhone4. The 4s and 5 have better cameras so I’ll upgrade in January when Verizon will let me. I’m not going to give up on real cameras — yet — but I find myself using the the iPhone more often lately, especially at Coney Island. Nice to have a camera, software and computer in my pocket!
