Stat 1- Every two days, there are more pictures being taken than in the whole history of film photography.

Stat 2- There are more pictures being taken by iPhone than any other camera (~65%).

Stat 3- Before this weekend is over, there will be more photographs than bricks in the world. (Bricks!)

Mind-blowing, right?

It makes me wonder, is there any point in taking photographs anymore, or has everything been done already?

Here are two pictures I’ve taken with my iPhone. I like both of them, even if they’re not particularly interesting or unique in any way. So is it okay to share them, or have we reached a point where we’ve had enough?

(1) The Hirschgebouw on Leidseplein, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

When the birds don’t cooperate it’s nice to have the macro lens in the camera bag, so you don’t have to come home empty handed 😉
