iPhone Diaries #122: "Metro at dusk (and about managing expectations)"

I love the idiosyncrasies of the iPhone: a pinhead of a sensor with a puny dynamic range, crammed with a marketeer's dream amount of pixels, a plastic lens (probably 1 element only) that's prone to flare, and a body that's warm and languid to the touch.
I love the images coming out of this lens! It's not about detail, it's about atmosphere; it's not about sharpness, it's about flavour; it's not about resolution, it's about a feeling.
It's about managing expectations...about how to be content and happy...with what you have to work with.
Guelph, May 20th.
