When I first started playing around with my Nokia 3650 camera phone, I did not know when it actually took the picture, and my results were blurry. The camera is supposed to make an audible shutter-click noise, but one of the first things I did with my new phone is turn off any and all sounds. I never hear the shutter click.
I took this photo on one of our missions to a local school, where swarms of Iraqi kids wanted us to “flash” their photo. I think these two kids’ names are both Mohammed, although around here they stress the second syllable rather than the first, so it comes out as “Hamid” to my western ears. I tell them my name is Mike Tyson.
I have only reduced the dimensions by half and added a black border. The rest, including color and brightness, is straight from the camera.
I transferred the photo to my computer even before I saw my computer. Once we parked our vehicle, grabbed our gear, and started walking towards my tent, I was making a bluetooth connection (although I have to leave the display up to make that work). Bluetooth has been absolutely lovely, and I glad I did not decide to go without.
