->> Ummmm, I've manged some pretty good pix with my "camera phone". Its not the tool, never has been. Its always been what you do with it.

Since quite often, the key factor was simply "having the camera" in the first place. Its just another tool. But, its one most of us have with them virtually all the time.

->> My very good friend Camden Thrasher (yes that is his real name) shot all of these on his iPhone throughout this year while he was traveling the world covering motorsport.

I venture to say the art form is far from dead.
