Layer upon layer…

Phone cameras in the beginning had a perceived short coming of making everything in focus. I never saw it that way and loved to exploit this idea by photographing windows and reflections.

Based on the window contents I’m guessing I was in Acland Street, St.Kilda on this day ten years ago. There are several long established cake shops here. It has over the years however evolved into a bit of a backpacker hotspot.

The only picture I made on this day ten years ago. A cafe somewhere in Melbourne’s inner west.

I’m still surprised that I managed to make interesting pictures with my humble Sony Ericsson C902. At the time it was producing a larger file than the iPhone. I waited until the iPhone 4 was released before I switched.

In 2009, ten years ago when I made this picture. Cameraphones were crude devices. Yet often capable of producing wonderful results. This image is one of them.

Strangely, despite the ease of use and portability of these devices my picture making was nowhere near as prolific then, as it is today? Sadly then, this is the only picture I made that day?

Disk space and storage may have been one issue impeding my picture making acticities. My state of mind another. Still I’m glad I never intentionally delete pictures, no matter how bad they seem when measured against my standards.
