“Always carry a camera, it’s tough to shoot a picture without one.” — Jay Maisel
I’m a big fan of photographer Jay Maisel. Jay always has a camera with him and takes pictures every day.
In a sense, I always have a camera with me, the one that comes with my phone. But the image quality I get from it is a far cry from that of my “proper camera”.
I was reminded of the importance of this a while back when I was wondering about the streets of Edinburgh. You never know when you are going to see something interesting. I cannot count the times when I saw something that would have made a good photograph but had left my “proper camera” at home.
Fortunately I had a good camera with me when these “electric” lips in an Edinburgh shop window caught my attention.
