Why Snapshot?

To my mind there is a vast difference between a photograph and a snapshot.
A photograph is made, the photographer has a vision for the image in mind and sets about creating it. Waiting for the right light or weather conditions and often visiting the scene several times to get it just right.
A snapshot on the other hand is taken as the opportunity arises, often with minimal thought. It is what we do on holiday, when out with family, it aids us in remembering those moments long past.
Having said that, many snapshots are perfect, just like the postcard, whilst some photographs, despite the time and effort, look like a hurried snapshot.
I take mainly snapshots, but occasionally, I get a beautiful photograph.

Huawei Ascend Y201

Here are some of the first shots that I have taken with my mobile phone. I have always believed that a $250 point and shoot is going to capture better images than any phone but when you don't have that point and shoot with you then the phone will do.

These images only been resized, framed and a watermark added. No adjustments were made to image quality, colour, contrast etc. etc. The phone is the budget Huawei Ascend Y201 and cost the princely sum of $39.50. I reckon it would stack up well to most sub $50 cameras.
