Spring is in the air, and the light is getting interesting as the late afternoons draw in.
It is not hard in Cambridge to find a scene that could be from another time. The bulbs in the streetlights are electric, but from here they could be gas.
I shot this with my phone and I can see the limitations – but then, should I be looking that hard that I miss the other qualities in the image?
If it isn’t obvious, I am thinking about getting another camera – a smaller carry-around camera than I have currently.
My carry-around camera is on the limit of ‘carry around’ and it has a fixed 35mm lens. That said, I would be lucky to find something that has its capability (see the photo at the end of this) in a small camera.
Or should upgrade my phone?
Or just make the image a bit lighter before uploading it?
The problem with the Internet (yet another problem with the Internet) is the access to forums where people discuss cameras, including cameras in phones. I know, it is my fault for looking.
If you are interested, take a look at The Online Photographer. They are currently discussing whether phones are ‘good enough’ now.
This is a view this afternoon of Kings College from the river at the ‘Backs’, as the river side of the colleges is called. The sky is another sign of spring, I guess.
And here is the shot from my current carry-around camera that I meant when I said it would be hard to beat it for what it can pull out of a scene.
