In fact, on my last trip abroad not too long ago, I exclusively used my iPhone to capture hundreds of scenes and sights from the ancient past and close-ups of delicious dishes. From there I tweeted them out and filled my Instagram feed and felt satisfied. Until returning home to find a phone full of .jpgs and not a clue on how to showcase them.
I think it’s about time our travel photos deserve better treatment. The time has come they command more attention.
