September Theme Day: Photographing the Photographer


A group of tourists visiting one of the chapels in the Jasna Góra Monastery in Częstochowa, Poland. A few of them are taking photos. It seems most people tend to use their cell phones for pictures now. I use a combination of both my real camera and my cell phone. This is one of the beautiful places I visited on my vacation this summer and I will be showing more photos of it tomorrow, but today is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community and this month's theme is "Photographing the Photographer". To see other interpretations of the theme, be sure to visit the City Daily Photo Theme Day gallery here.

Interesting photo, it shows a lot. I use my cell phone as well for photos sometimes though not as often as my camera.

I hardly never use my cell phone for photos, only my camera, I am so used to it.

I am afraid to take photos of people with faces towards me, I have a few that I took of people from the back.. the few I have taken I asked permission, very few. I know street photographers just snap away but I am embarrassed to do it. of course these people are across the word and will never see this. I am laughing now. my comment jogged a memory of a fiction book I read, the woman was hiding from a serial killer, and someone took a photo of her in the bleachers at a ball game and it hit the news papers and the killer found her. ok, you can say it. I agree I am a nut.

Great shot for today! I've gotten to using both camera and phone too. Sometimes I even like the cell phone shot better than my camera shot.

I almost never use the camera on my cell phone.

What a fantastic shot Lois. I always use my camera, my cell phone doesn't have a camera. I haven't upgraded because the phone works fine.

I only use my camera - my ancient phone isn't a smart phone!

Oh well done Lois, perfect shot for the theme.. did you think of the theme when you saved it?

Jack said...

It is a lovely photograph, Lois. And it also points out one of the things that might worry us as photographers. In our quest for perfect photographs of places that are new to us, are we getting in the way of people doing what they think is important, like this priest? No doubt he is used to it, but our tourism must change the ambience.
