Autumn Canal Shoes

Taken with my Nokia N95 mobile over the weekend, walking by a canal. Have a great week!

 

I started by just holding the camera out at arms length to get a shot straight down just of the water and the leaves. Then I noticed the reflections and that I could tilt the Nokia to include the bank and my feet. I then composed this shot to get a thirds composition. Thinking about it more, I would NEVER have done this with my Sony - dangle it over water like that - but the Nokia phone is so small and light that the shot seemed a natural. So I have decided that the camera you use will often dictate the shot, and open up creative opportunities that you would not get with another camera. I have decided to try using the Nokia a bit more than I have in the past, and see what comes out ....
