Looking through the pictures I took this week, I realized I’m relying way too heavily on my iPhone for when I want to snap something quickly. I see such a big difference between the quality and composition of shots when I’m using my camera versus editing on the iPhone.
Last week, I visited Spain for the first time. I was fortunate enough to be selected as a volunteer for WordCamp Europe – which, as a side note, was one of the best WordCamps I’ve been to. It was so well-organized with a group of fantastic speakers and the overall atmosphere was just awesome. I wish I had some reason in my life to sit in a room like that all day and listen to everyone communicating in such a wide variety of languages, to the extent that most folks seemed to forget which language they should be speaking. Europe, you’re a very special place and I adore you.
Sevilla! I have a bunch more pictures to edit, but in the most unsurprising statement ever: Spain was absolutely gorgeous. The architecture was just fascinating, as well as the colors of the city. I’m looking forward to sharing more of those photos in the next few days.
I was busy packing this week, so I stuck with the iPhoneography for the most part. I’ve also been partial to being able to edit my pictures in VSCOCam, so the iPhone pictures have continued. Being in the suburbs means I’ve take a lot more pictures of nature, I think. I was in Hoboken and Jersey City over the weekend, so it was refreshing to try to capture some more urban elements again.
I forgot the charger for my camera’s battery, which means I was relegated to iPhoneography this week. I feel like I’m not able to hone in on the composition as much as I’d like when using just my phone, but I also like being forced to play with the idea of not having as much control.
