When I received my iPod Touch for Christmas, I was so excited that I could enter into the realm of iphoneography. I bought a few apps and then never touched them! Has that ever happened to you? So this theme was good for me, getting me out of my dSLR comfort zone. I went into Milan last Sunday and played around with my different apps on the subway there and back. My camera phone is not going to replace my dSLR anytime soon, but it sure was fun!
The greatest part of this adventure: I finally got a shoe shot! I've been on the Milan subway so many times, wanting to capture the shoes. Italian fashion is an interesting study, and this image captures so much in one shot: The elderly gentleman, impeccably dressed to the tip of his toes; the young woman in her tights and black boots; the student in his tennis shoes and jeans. Even their hands and bags speak volumes to me.
This image by lizzard_nyc is another fun subway study. She captured the readers in the car and the techies on the platform (click on the image below to see her companion shot of the techies in the comments). An interesting look at how commuters spend their transit time, and a perfect example of why camera phones are such a wonderful tool in our photographic tool box. I will more readily pull mine out in the future!
