Mobile images

I've been so busy with work, life, travel, everything these days that I've sadly had little time for creative pursuits. In desperation, I've begun snapping a great volume of pictures with my mobile phone, usually while commuting or running errands, anything to feel a bit more creative. My mobile camera is quite poor, which is fun because it makes taking interesting images all the more challenging.

I remember reading an interview with a Cuban filmmaker who was asked whether his country's limited resources prevented him from realising his vision for a particular movie. To the contrary, he said the constraints forced him to be even more creative. Not that my little mobile images are on par with Cuban cinema, but you get the idea.
