“The best camera is the one that’s with you.”

Thus spake Chase Jarvis. And nowadays, more often than not, that camera is your phone. For Jarvis, it’s an iPhone, and he made an app for called … Best Camera.

I have only owned Android phones, and I don’t particularly like applying cutesy filters before I don’t upload them to the cloud for all to enjoy. (You follow me?) I just take pictures to document the passing scene.

The previous entry contained two such shots and might serve as the beginning of an occasional feature here in the Basement: Phone Photos.

Here’s one from a visit to Texas (this post is post-dated). I love cicadas to begin with, and it struck me funny the way it parked itself on the huge frog’s nose. I kept imagining the lightning-quick flash of tongue and “bye-bye, bug” … But nothing happened—except the cicada flew away. So the second part came true, which is not exactly nothing.
