The Best Camera

I'm an early riser. Yesterday I woke up at about 6:30AM. My 11 year old had had a sleepover for his birthday the night before, so I was planning to go to the store to buy some bacon to make breakfast for everyone. I got downstairs and looked out the window and saw that it was foggy. Prime photo opportunity! But I had a dilemma: My cameras were in the bedroom. My wife is not an early riser but she is a light sleeper and I usually let her sleep in on weekends. So I could go creeping back in there and surely wake her up, or I could just let the photo opportunity to pass. I decided instead to just use my phone and live with its photographic inadequacies. I went to a nearby lake and snapped a dozen or so shots before heading off to the grocery store as per the original plan. This photo is my favorite of the lot, and if I say so myself it's not bad at all.

The old cliché is true: The best camera is the one you have with you.
