A Lotta “Some” Variables

My cheap phone sometimes takes photos that somehow come out looking something like a non-artist’s attempt at a Monet painting. I keep thinking about getting a new-fangled mobile, but I also haven’t let go of the thought: what for?

Maybe I could take better pictures with it. That thought then gets me all wrapped up in the idea of “quality” and Pirsig’s Zen. Ugh!

What say you?! A) Get a new phone, Jim. Or, B) Keep the one you have until it dies.

        The pictures have a certain style and they don’t look bad. The imperfections create that nice painting type of style. Unless you’re willing to spend money to get 8mp or even 20mp phone cameras.
