A contemporary & poignant moment.
Maybe a case in which form follows function. As of late, I am more interested including individuals, whether friend, family or even strangers, in my photographs, thus my photographs are increasingly populated. When events unfold before me now, as they did during a lull in a small late afternoon get together, rather than think that it is too bad that I am sitting here without my full frame camera, I instead pull out my mobile phone, the current version of an Instamatic camera, to capture an image or two.
Since taking mobile phone photographs is such an ubiquitous event now, I am seemingly transparent. A nice trade-off.
