Most of my photographic time over the past year has been spent on the iPad, processing images taken with my iPhone.  I am continually amazed by the images that can be created using a cell phone.  As we move into the future the quality of the images will continue to grow.  However, when I go out on a photo expedition I always bring my DSLR.  It is a completely different experience shooting with a camera as opposed to a phone.  To begin with, on the iPhone, I always shoot in a 1×1 format, while my DSLR is full frame 35mm.  It always takes a few minutes to get used to shooting in a rectangular format.  It is definitely a different “frame” of mind.  

On this particular day, I went out to shoot with my old friend Dave Weinberg.  Dave has a terrific blog called cellphoneSketchpad (, which is well worth the visit.  On this day, we decided to hit Coney Island and check out what damage Sandy had wreaked.  Most of the photographs I took that day were with the iPhone, and they can be found on my Tumblr blog ( and on Instagram (  This is one image I took with the DSLR.  There was a certain peace and solitude to be found on the boardwalk on that cold, cold morning and I think this image represents that.
