Take the photos others aren't taking

The title "Take the photos others aren't taking" really is a rehash of the OP's observation of lenses to get that were specialized and phone cameras couldn't take them.

So shot ultra wide, really ultra wide, or shoot true macro or closer, or shoot BIF's or wildlife,

You can go to Walmart with your camera card and blow up one or two images, quite large, larger than a normal sheet and throw some okay frames on them and put them on your wall.

Try to hone in on subjects and images that the phones can't do.

According to Manny Faber, there are "termite artists" who shoot in obscurity pursuing an inner vision others can't see (think Vivian Maier). And there are "white elephant artists" who shout out with technique and vision for all to see (think Ansel Adams). Which one you are doesn't matter, both have produced fine art.
