I was intrigued by this pink bicycle in Paris:
The angle at which it was hanging on that fence begged for an optical illusion shot. The bright, contrasting colors and unrideable bent wheels brought it all together for me.
I wonder if it’s still there?

In 2007 I visited Joshua Tree National Park in California with my brother to do some hiking. Here’s one of my favorite photos from that trip, taken with a Casio Exilim pocket camera:
I hope this helps to put to rest the myth that one needs a fancy, expensive camera to take nice photos. I have an even better sunset snap somewhere in the archives, taken with a 1.3MP Sony camera that I won in a contest in 2000. Let’s see if I can dig it up… Yep, here you go,
Expensive D-SLR cameras are good for low light, for sports, and for cases where you need more zoom or more wide angle than a pocket camera provides. D-SLR’s usually have a better flash, or the option of an accessory flash. But in many cases a pocket camera is just as good, or even better (e.g. taking videos). If you don’t have a camera with you because your D-SLR is too big, you will not get any photo at all… unless you count your (probably) fixed-focus cell phone camera. Which I wouldn’t.
