I’ve been extremely behind schedule in setting aside time to cull from the heap of photos I took during our recent family vacation onboard a Carnival Cruise ship. They say all you need is to set sail on one to thoroughly realized whether you’ll object to it or become addicted by it. Our family is on the latter camp.
Somewhere along the third port of call (St Kitts), I noticed my newly purchased Sony A7II was acting wonky. It continuously gave me this "camera error" message which I absolutely could not figure out and quite frankly didn’t have the time to further look into because that required the web and it wasn’t worth paying roaming charges on my phone to resolve the issue.
The camera was essentially bricked and so with 3 days left still of vacation, I stored away the camera and utilized the one device I invariably had with me all along more than my camera - the iPhone 6 Plus. It’s very easy to get emotionally detached from something when you start analyzing too much on the technical details of a tool other that what’s in front of you which is why it felt a bit liberating documenting our time in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico solely with the iPhone.
