I now see the smart phone as a fun and creative camera to use, for when the situation calls for a snap shot. It feels much like a toy film camera, with a similar sensitivity. The difference, of course, is a sharp digital image if so desired. DSLR’s, mirrorless, and other cameras are certainly not replaced by it, but by mixing in process, the results can be very nice.

Perhaps one reason why sunset landscapes are so popular is because we intuitively know that, someday, we’ll all reach a point where we’ve already seen more sunsets than we’ll see again. This does not have to be melancholy, but rather the opposite. Enjoy your time in the sun.
