Without a camera: a post made entirely on iPhone. / by Mike Dawson

The last week has been... Vexing. I find myself in moments where I'm confronted with transcendental beauty or a situation demanding a high ISO sensor, and all I have is a somewhat shaky hand and an iPhone camera. Still, these moments bear notice, even if they lack the nuance, depth of field, and high dynamic range we've become accustomed to.

I have an irrational attraction to construction sites -- So much so they almost received their own heading in the blog. This beautiful seldom opened door could not be passed without being photographed but I would give a lot to have walked by with a 35mm lens and a good body. It's been locked ever since.

I saw Lorde at the United Palace Theatre. No one checked our bags. I didn't bring a camera for fear of confiscation. People tried to use their phone flash to get shots of her on stage. Their knowledge of optics made my heart bled and my soul ache. Still, she sounded beautiful.

I believe this image speaks for itself. It may be for Cornell's 150th anniversary. I see it out my window. I'm waiting for lightning and storm clouds to begin swirling above before some sort of unholy symphony we'll all forget tomorrow.

Never leave home without a camera if you can avoid it.
