Whenever I'm out shooting architectural details I naturally snap a few with my iPhone. Many times afterwards I find, with certain images, I prefer the "quality" and "aesthetic" of several iPhone images over the the dslr images. Here's a piece recently written by PhotoShelter co-founder Allen Murabayashi, included in Wired Magazine, that touches on this very topic. Allen was kind enough to include me in the piece - it's funny to read the comments by readers. I don't understand why so many appear to be dead set against ( afraid of ) the use of any and all the wonderful tools available in creating images. The point is not to get hung up on the equipment or method - to me it's more about creative self expression - however it might be accomplished.

I have always felt a heightened sense of awareness of the world around me and am obsessively driven to express myself creatively. I feel this is the most exciting time ever to be a photographer, artist, or creative professional and am truly fortunate to live in an age where my creative energy can be positively focused to maintain a livelihood and support my family.
I Love seeing clean lines and symmetry in architecture . This view, taken from within the circular colonnade of Ionic Order columns at th...
