If I were stranded on a desert island...

... and could only have one device, what would that be? Well, if there were cellular coverage, it would be the iPhone 5S (that's soon to be released). I mean, talk about a high nimbleosity rating. 

Here's the thing: I'm happiest when I have my not-very-big Lowepro shoulder bag with an iPad and OM-D inside. Add a lens or two and a flash, and I feel like I can photograph and write about any situation I encounter.  

But that's my reporter kit. That's the briefcase I pack when I'm out to find a story and publish it.  

The iPhone, on the other hand, is my "I don't give a darn what anyone thinks of this picture but I'm going to take it" camera.   It encourages me to take photos that I would have passed on before. 

And even though the iPhone's aim to handle the physics of photography for us so we get good shots without worrying about shutter speeds and aperture, knowing the physics of photography makes it that much more powerful in my hands. 

When I walk the door, I have my wallet in one front pocket and the iPhone in the other. With those two things, the world is my stage.
