I really enjoyed seeing all your mobile photography images in the flickr pool and reading my fellow muses' posts over the past eight days. I think it's unanimous--everyone loves the convenience and portability of a camera phone! (well, maybe not everyone, but close...)
I have been working on my ability to use my iPhone for my street photography shots. It definitely has its advantages--the two biggest ones being that is it completely silent (if you remember to turn the sound off!) and it is less intimidating to the people you are trying to photograph. In fact, most times, they probably think you are just shooting off a quick text message.
For my photo above, I spotted this "taxi background" in the window of a building on 8th Avenue and I just loved it. I figured it would make a visually interesting back drop for a photo so I parked myself on the corner and waited for someone to walk by. I am not sure if I like it better in color or black & white, so I made a diptych out of the two photos when I was on the subway on my way to work Monday morning. My edits were made with the camera+, PS express and diptic apps.
Shelle777's photo below is a fantastic street shot. I love how she used her camera phone (I think it's a blackberry) to capture this couple walking beneath the scaffolding in Times Square. The bright lights provide a mysterious and dream-like quality to the photo...a moment that may have been missed if not for her quick action with her mobile phone!
