Last Monday I had a few hours to burn before and after my dentist appointment in the the Chicago Loop. All things considered, I packed my camera bag, grabbed my tripod and hit the streets.
It wasn’t until I parked and turned on my camera that I realized my Sony a6000 was about to Sony aDIOS. It was ready to croak. With 4% juice left I knew I wouldn’t get many snaps out of it or my new 18-105mm lens.
Temporarily ticked yet determined, I left my camera and tripod in the trunk altogether and resorted to using my iPhone 6S Plus. It’s no doubt a powerful device and in most circumstances a great bench player. Further, in my favor was an overcast sky, which I really like when it comes to photography. The soft daylight has a way of bringing out the elegance of the subject(s) regardless of what’s being used to capture it.
In hindsight, even though my plan changed I’m well pleased with the results.
Remember: Look Up!
