In following with my recently posted Favorite Landscape Photos of 2017 — images I shot using my ‘Real’ cameras — I’d like to share this collection of My favorite cellphone photos of 2017. Yes, I admit, I don’t really consider my cellphone a real professional camera. That probably explains why I have two distinct Instagram pages; one for my personal/cellphone photos, and my professional business @enlightenedimages_IG page for my ‘real’ work. Still, I love many of the images I’ve taken with my cellphone, and it does give backing proof to the saying, “The best camera is the one you have with you.” FWIW – These were all shot with my Samsung Galaxy S6.

I’d love to know which one(s) of these photos you like if you’d care to leave a comment in the comment section below.

Cheers and best wishes,
– Gary.
