As someone who loves the art of photography, I often shudder when I see people pulling out their smartphone to take pictures. Sure I can understand using a phone for a casual picture, but I went to Mauritius and La Réunion a couple weeks ago, a fantastic vacation with marvellous views and I saw a majority taking their 'pictures' with smartphones. My children also don't understand why I bother with lenses, flashes etc when they can take 'a picture' just as well (urgh) with their smartphone or ipad.

Guess I'm growing old...

Well we'll see who will have good and memorable pictures 20 years from now, if the smartphone crowed even still has any of their memories (carry on through formats, backups, computer losses, etc..)
