The only stills camera I have had for a few months is the one built in to my mobile phone. The good thing about that camera is that I always have it with me when I am out and about, so get to snap little scenes that appeal to me. The bad thing is the resolution - which is fairly crummy.

For which reason, I am in the process of buying a new (used) camera with a respectable lens and resolution.

But still, it does make me think that low resolution might have a virtue - in that it makes you think about composition. And perhaps the art of image composition has an overlap with descriptive writing. It is all about seeing.
