The best camera

The best camera …… is the one you have with you. How many times do we hear that?

Now if you wanted to be pedantic you could argue for and against that statement. No matter how much gear you have (in value or quantity) is it any use if it’s not with you?

I happened to be out at the local airport and ..yep you guessed it the only camera I had was my smartphone. This was a slight oversight on my part because I normally have at least one of my cameras rattling around in the car.

So given the limited ability of the smartphone lens (the sooner they have decent zooms the better) I decided to go for it anyway and take a few snaps.

And my favourite of the day, an unexpected visit from a RAF Hercules:

These shots were taken from the perimeter, with careful placement of the lens between the fencing.

Not too bad for some shots taken on a phone, I think.
