In the backyard with a camera phone

I’m not a purist about camera gear, having always enjoyed wringing interesting results out of dodgy bits of gear.

I’m not alone it seems, as retro plastic cameras and mobile phones are the cameras of choice for many these days. Mobile phones were once pretty ordinary as far as taking photos went, but this has rapidly changed. They’re mostly not yet up to the quality a good compact camera, but they’re getting better and if you have them on you then they’ll get used.

Here are some photographs taken locally using my phone.
