    I agree, I just do it on a monthly or sometime a weekly basis, comparing to my journal notes. I really do not do much pleasure shooting, I mainly do project shooting. My refection shots are an example of what I like to shoot on a personal level. I like to spend time looking at the various photography books and seeing if I am making progress.

    I worry sometimes that the Marine in you becomes more about the next mission then reflections on the enjoyment of a pleasurable endeavour. Sometimes I like to just set back and take in the beauty of an image, not critique it or improve it just enjoy. Photography for me is strictly for personal enjoyment, as is every image I shoot. Of course I seek to improve, I know I've improved, I know I've a long way to go, but I'm under no schedules, restrictions, or expectations. I'm free to explore, and that my friend is my definition of the ideal hobby.

    I decided, finally, that rather than be disappointed I didn't have my DSLR for this moment, to be glad I have a phone that takes good pictures!

    I think your glass was more than half full here! What a great scene. I do the same thing sometimes when I kick myself for not having my camera but you're right. Having just about any phone these days is a million times better than the options even as little as 10 years ago.

    I've seen a lot of photographers that would be more than willing to claim this one. It's a great shot!!!

    :) Thanks very much. There's a fair chance I would have screwed up and lost the shot with the DSLR, anyway!

    Following zulu's lead, I'll be grateful for pretty good cameras on today's cell phones as well. Here are a couple of my favorite work photos from this year; a sunset while I was planting peas this spring and a summer storm moving through over a field of sugar beets.

    If you didn't tell us nobody probably would have known.
    Great images whether taken by a phone or not.
