Walking around Ludwigshafen center, I passed by the offices of the Rheinpfalz, the local newspaper. I saw this man reading the daily paper and it struck me as quaint. There was a time when many more people would have been stopping by to take a look and depending on the daily paper for news. Also, the angle struck me – while you can clearly tell this is a man, he is headless, with the paper covering his head. It stuck me in the moment.
It’s times like these that I am so thankful that cell phones have a half-decent camera on them. While some photography snobs look down upon cell phone cameras, I think they are a wonderful addition to life. We are able to capture so many more moments and now at a pretty good quality. I would not give up my Canon DLSR, but I don’t always have it with me. And for those moments, I am glad it is so easy to get a good quality photograph.
