Here is part 2 of my Montreal photo diary! The photo above has reminded me that I want to eat fresh baked treats more often. Sitting with Kristen at Rustique, relaxing, sipping coffees and eating those delicious sweets was a real pleasure, and something I never think to do here in Toronto. So, noted! Cafe chill times is a must for me.
It seems as though I pulled out my iPhone far more than my DSLR on this trip, mostly out of convenience, but also because I didn’t want to be the gal constantly pulling out my big camera and taking time to get a perfect photo everywhere we went. Most of my Toronto friends know I try to document as much as possible with my DSLR when I’m out and about, but when you only get to see your best friend a few times a year, focusing so much energy on what would be good content for the blog seems insignificant, so my iPhone felt like the more reasonable option. I guess it really doesn’t matter, but I feel like I have read something similar on other’s blogs, that iPhones feel way more convenient when you are running about town, but still want to document the day.
What do you guys think? Do iPhones (or any other smart phone) seem like a legitimate photographic tool. Or are we just succumbing to the fast paced nature of our society?
