This is just going to be a quick update. Not quite something I would call a blog post. Call it a lifesign anyway.
The more I travel - still not enough - the more I have noticed that I rather tend to take more quick snapshots with my smartphone than with my DSLR, if I even carry it with me. On longer trips, especially abroad, I definitely bring it along, but I think it's a combination of both my own laziness (a smartphone is just so much more convenient) and the fact that my camera is slowly, but surely reaching its retirement age (a new one is overdue!) that I sometimes don't even take it out of my bag and simply take more (quick) photos with my phone. More recently I've only used the DSLR for event photography (private events as well as work events). It still serves that purpose.
It's the time of social media; be it Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat. People use their phones all the time and to be honest most smartphone cameras have a fairly decent quality nowadays - so is mine. So why not take photos with them? I decided that - if I have any nice shots taken with my phone - I will add those to my gallery here. I actually started with some photos of my trip to Canada and to the US last winter.
May I introduce? The one and only Stanley Cup from the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. Great trip, just really, really cold (-25°C). #nofilter #justsomephotoshop
