Home and the iPhone X

10 thoughts on “Home and the iPhone X”

  1. As I mentioned on Twitter: after taking pictures for almost 40 years with cameras of all kinds and sizes (from high end SLRs to duct-taped plastic Holgas), I sold all my cameras this year and went 100% mobile. I realized that all my favorite photos of the last decade were taken with a phone. Maybe because it’s less pretentious, no need to act like The Photographer, or because of its imperfections – I don’t know.

    Wishing you the best for 2018, also with the new home.

  2. Your blog posts on here are always interesting as well as entertaining and I find myself coming back to them for one reason or another. Like in this one I notice the symbolism and the repeating patterns of twos (which maybe has personal meaning outside the picture), then there’s the lines and diagonals of course. All seemingly very well structured for a blog post, thought out or put together, one way of the other its apparent simplicity belies its complexity. Jolly good stuff and better than just posting on Instagram etc.

    1. Thanks! I appreciate that, Kevin! I hadn’t seen your comment. I think it had slipped through my notifications somehow. I don’t spend enough time on my posts, if I’m honest. I plan to spend more time on them this year! I’m going to make a crack at taking all of this more seriously.

  3. Never underestimate your phone as your camera. Those who sneeze their nose and call it not real enough have issues with their mindset. Even if I primarily use my Fuji X100T, I never hesitate to use my iPhone whenever I feel for it. And it seldom fails to deliver my imaginary visions more than good enough. Sometimes it even happens that I actually prefer to use my phone. Sometimes it even happens that I wonder why I ever bought an expensive camera – oh yes… I wanted a โ€œrealโ€ camera. Itโ€™s all in your mind.

    By the way about that. What a beautiful crappy house Josh ๐Ÿ˜‰ I like it. New and modern living spaces may feel luxurious and comfortable. But old buildings full of flaws have something that modern comfort never can offer – a soul and a body like a living being. Sometimes that makes you feel more alive yourself. I wish you luck with your new home and a curious new year.

    And I love your photos, almost forgot to mention that. Full of soul, as always.

  4. While a good photographer can do really good work with pretty much any camera, I am far more impressed with the photos you have taken with your old Leica and your Ricoh than the shots you have shown here with your telephone.

    1. I’m fairly certain, that is dependent on situation more than equipment. Photos of my soon to be house I’m sure would look similar with anything. Some of my favorite photos have been taken with my phone. Of course, it will never replace my M3 and Summilux.
