So this whole thing is about mobile photography and yet there are no photos on here! Why? Well this whole endeavor is about two things: truth and me thinking out loud. I just do not want to take a bunch of photos with my cellphone and post them here. There are a few conditions:
- it has to be something worth photographing. It has to be a moment in real life that I want to preserve.
- It has to be spontaneous. Something I just see. There can be no preplanning.
- No regular camera. Because if I was planning it out I would use my regular camera. It just makes no sense, for me at least, to plan something out and use my cellphone.
So yeah until these conditions are met I guess we all need to be patient. I probably also need to get out more. I think that is what is truly unique and frightening about mobile photography; you need to go out into the world, you cannot invite the world into your studio.
Also Asterios Polyp is an amazing graphic novel about the worlds greatest architect who never actually built anything.
