Sometimes, it's a PhoneCam

I always try to keep at least one camera on me at all times, because invariably, if I don't have one, I'll find a photo opportunity! Still, there have been a few times in the recent past when I've stumbled upon something wonderful and only had my phone camera! Fortunately, the camera in my G1 Android phone is pretty nice for moments like this. Here are three of my favorite PhoneCam images.

This one begged me--a lover of all cool signs!--to take its photo! I was impressed with the sharp quality and vibrant neon colors of this little Googlephone Photo.

Sigel's Liquor and Beer (2009)
Location: Addison, Texas

This one comes from a random encounter on campus. I walked up to the priest and said, "May I please take your photo?" He said, "Why you would want to, I don't know, but ok!" Why would I want to!?!?!? Are you serious?

Talk to a Catholic Priest (2009)
Location: University of North Texas

This is my terrier, Orson. He is hard to photograph, so even a decent cell phone picture makes me very happy! I LOVE HIM!

My Little Boyfriend (2009)
Location: On the furniture!

Even if you only have your cell phone at hand, get out there and shoot the world around you!

I couldn't agree more! I love the sign.

The sign is fantastic! Better than some standalone point & shoot cameras.

Also, the priest? Yeah. You would hate yourself forever if you didn't take a photo of something like that. :-)
