The Big (And Little) Picture

I used to be the one who never used her iPhone camera. I preferred the big camera, the one with all of the lenses. The bells and whistles. For the last little while, though, the iPhone has been my camera of choice. It’s small and easy to use and always, always with me.


But then. Then you see a little bee. And the iPhone just can’t capture it. You need to bring out the big camera with the macro lens. And you need to take 36 photos of the little bee just to get one that’s okay. Not great but pretty sharp and okay.

That’s why it’s worth it to have the big camera. That’s why it’s fun to be a photographer. Because you can capture the little bee and it reminds you to stop and look at the little things because they are the things that help you to see the bigger picture.

And the bigger picture? That’s what really matters. Really.

    how did you get that bee to stay still for that long?! (I just got the iPhone 7 Plus – I’m still practicing, but I can really tell a difference in the camera vs my old iPhone 6)

    Yep. There are times when you’ve got to pull out the Big Camera! I can’t believe how rare that happens these days, though. It’s so convenient to have a little camera with you all the time. Nice shot, Carole!

    Bee-utiful! (I’m sorry!) I just got the 7 too so we shall see. (Smashed phone…wasn’t intended!) It’s a shame that big camera doesn’t come out often enough at all.

    Cool shot! My big camera doesn’t see much action either these days. It’s getting to the time of year where the colors are so pretty – I will be taking it out soon enough!

    Neat shot!
    I sometimes use an app named Shoot on my iphone6.
    But still never as much fun as the Nikon!
