Re: Is It capture the memory, or Photographic excellence?

The thing with smart phones is using one is a lazy way to capture a memory. I hate the shutter lag. but I can't carry my A77 with grip, and a decent lens, in my pocket.  For many years, if you saw me, I had a camera connected to me in some way and for years I carried two. One with a long lens and one with a wide lens.  I receive photographs daily from family and friends. taken from their smart phones.. I think is photographic overload. I do not look at photographs the same way I use to.

Funny thing is if I use one of my good cameras and isolate a subject with a shallow depthh of field, and it looks stunning with beautiful bokeh.. when I show it to someone, they may say. " Its a shame the background was out of focus..  So over the years my interest in photography has been more for me then to share with others.
