the world through a little lens
celebrating the simple point-and-shoot
by jennifer kan martinez
This is a simple tribute to the little pocket-sized digital camera. While it can't do everything the more sophisticated cameras can, sometimes, when all you want is a memory preserved, an idiot-proof point-and-shoot is just the answer.
All of the following photos were taken with a standard pocket camera, and none of them have been enhanced in any way, in the hope that their natural beauty will shine through, imperfections and all.
So, here's to the little guy that braved hail in the Falkland Islands, trekked across the Sahara on caamelback, tramped up a glacier in New Zealand and dove down over 100 feet into the seas of Indonesia and never let me down.
I hope you enjoy seeing the world through its little lens.
