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 (http://cellphonesketchpad.com), 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 (http://erikslieber.tumblr.com) and on Instagram (http://instagram.com/eslieber).  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.
