Every One a Keeper – Goodbye iPhone 5
In April 2013 I got a new toy to play with. The iPhone 5 has pretty much been constantly by my side every day since. I have a compulsion to take pictures and looking back through the archive I can only suggest that the theme is my daily life. Since I got the phone I have taken about 17000 photos and every one is a keeper or at least I have kept everyone. The quality varies massively and the subject matter is often dubious and there are far too many selfies. Sometimes I am very heavy handed with my edits but I took a view years ago that if i snap it with my phone it’s fair game for manipulation.
My iPhone 5 has now been retired and I really wanted to give it a bit of a send off. I looked in the archive and tried my best to whittle my selection to what is posted here, it made sense to exclude the recent India trip from this post as there is still about 2000 photos that are waiting on the first viewing since November 2014.
Some of these photos have a appeared on my flickr stream or Instagram, a lot make it to Facebook and a chunk of them form part of the visual diary I have been keeping for years. These snapshots represent my life, loves, tourism, adventure, friendship and occasionally what I’m having for dinner.
