Searching for Silver with the iPhone

Many will say that you don't need an expensive SLR anymore since everyone now has an iPhone or some other smartphone with a high resolution camera.  I totally disagree, as will most very serious photographers.  However, the iPhone is a great backup for the serious photographer.

I was with my son on the campus of the University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign to get him registered for classes when I noticed a bed of hostas.  I realized I could get some beautiful silver tones in a black and white print.  I hadn't brought my primary camera since I wasn't on a photographic mission.  But the iPhone certainly served the purpose.  Here's the photo to prove that its always a good thing to carry a camera, even when its your your phone.
