It’s great having a phone with a half-decent camera. It’s nowhere near as good as my “real” camera, but because I almost always have the phone with me, I can snap photos anywhere, almost no matter what I’m doing:

Yesterday this scary looking van was parked outside the Westin hotel in Collins Street. The first time I walked past I was pondering if it might be a disaster recovery crew for computer equipment.

I overheard someone’s conversation which tied in with what I later saw reported on Channel 7… the hotel’s underground carpark was flooded. Whoopsie.
Sometimes the phone camera just doesn’t quite cut it though. This picture might be vaguely amusing if you could read the ACF Fight Climate Change sticker on the back of the 4WD…
