iPhone photos: Las Vegas
As mentioned elsewhere, I attended WPPI 2010 in Las Vegas the past week to present a masterclass there. And in short, I had a great time. I just love Vegas! The constant hum of activity, and the glitziness of it, and the impressive architecture .. all of it energizes me the moment I step out of the cab from the airport.
Roaming around The Strip with some friends in the afternoons and evenings, I opted out of carrying a Nikon D3 with me all the time. It just felt like so much brute weight when I’m not working. So instead I kept it simple with just my iPhone. And as you may have heard recently, the iPhone is now the most popular camera on Flickr!
Above is a selection of some of the iPhone photos. I think they look surprisingly good for so little control over the image-taking process! The photos were manipulated with the ShakeItPhoto app on the iPhone. No other work went into these.
As for the title … well, late one evening, going down the Strip in a cab with a friend, we waited at the Flamingo intersection. And we waited. The cabbie suddenly exclaimed, “Curse you, Flamingo!” Apparently that slow intersection is the bane of all cabbies in Vegas. We feel your pain, brother.
