    That's a great find - if it was anywhere near me I'd be tempted to go back with all my kit and spend some time photographing it from every angle! It'd be great on a bit of a misty day as well.

    Cheers, Jeff

    I couldn't remember the town from or too that I was going which was frustrating. or I would have done.

    Those are great shots Chilli! At least you have the phone, otherwise imagine your frustration!

    I'm often driving and I can't even make use of the phone (busy freeway, etc.).

    See my story about an iPhone grabshot on a local road that I turned into a bit of art.

    I went straight from a 27 year old manual film SLR to a digital SLR in 2007, and bypassed the smartphone revolution (I have a basic pay-as-you-go mobile and make £2 or £3 of calls a year).

    The fact that children are fascinated by them puts me off: I don't know if I've missed out or been lucky.

    The second battery in my old phone, a cameraless, thick as pigsh*t phone, a Nokia 3030e has packed up, so tomorrow DPD are promissing to deliver a Moto G 7 plus. Please don't tell me where I could have bought a new battery for my old phone. The deal is done. I intend to still carry a Sony R100 m3 when I do not carry a proper camera.
    What I lumber myself with in a weeks time remains to be seen.

    About the same with me. I was lumbered with a mobile when at work but since retirement I just have one in the car glove compartment in case of emergencies. I carry an Olympus 4/3 when I'm out and about and have an oldish Sony full frame for other stuff.

    In 2005 an employer offered me a rented mobile telephone so that he could contact me 'at any time'.
    When I told him that it would only be switched on during the hours for which he paid me, and that any messages left on it would be reviewed after I arrived at work, the offer was withdrawn.

    Here is a shot from a picnic last year where I left the cameras at home to surprise of my wife

    This is from an early morning shot where my cameras where buried under a tone of stuff in my boot so I grabbed this before catching a ferry

    I recognise that. I spent my childhood summer holidays at Dovercourt! *Twilight Zone theme*
