When traveling on social occasions how many of you as photographers would decide not to take a camera with you? Not many I'd guess, but it's something I decided to do recently once intentionally, and once unintentionally.
As trips go, a wedding in New York (where I was not required to take official photos) seemed an ideal opportunity to leave the 'big' cameras behind. Concentrate on the occasion. Live a bit more in the moment I told myself.
I'm not much of a holiday snap sort of person and on similar previous trips I'd ended up using just the iPhone anyway. An easy decision.
Walking round Manhattan unencumbered was a delight initially. I love just using the iPhone and editing on the fly.
