I don’t know why I’ve not done this earlier ahaha, but if I flip through my phone, there’s a good 900 instagram photos of things/places that I’ve taken with my iPhone. If a robber would like to know my personality, all he has to do is steal my phone (FYI, my phone is encrypted with CIA clearance level passwords that I even I sometimes forget).
We are a culture of picture takers, documenters, stalkers (yes, I have my own stALk footage), voyagers, storytellers, but really the reasons why people take photos these days are: NARCISSISM and everyone today seems to have the attention span of a goldfish… meaning, we forget a lot.
Prima Dona is what I call myself when it comes to photography. I’m a purist at heart. Most of my friends know I’ll leave everything behind but a camera…. let’s say during my travels I am called upon a situation where I must relinquish my camera for the clothes in my bag… you know what’s going to happen. While you’re busy shopping for Manolo Blahniks, I am outside sitting on a bench waiting for something to happen.
Normally I carry my Nikon and my Rollei but these days “capture the moment” means having to be faster than everyone else. The speed of how fast in which we whip out our phones and snap a photo should be officially deemed an Olympic Sport.

So here are some of my favorite photos from my iPhone.
