Nokia occasionally lends me a handset and asks me to take photos for them. I see the results from the current swathe of mobile phone cameras and Nokia’s 808 Pureview remains up there with the very best of them.

My intention was to show this image, gateway to Southend’s streets of shops, in isolation.
Photoshop is responsible for some serious bending of reality! The image above is literally 100 yards away and an about face turn, but my wash on these images really doesn’t allow you the courtesy of placing them in the same location!
And the reason for the choice of color? Would you feel warm and relaxed, with thoughts of a free tomorrow, whilst looking at the buildings?
No. And ditto for me.
This is Southend’s Pier, the longest in the UK I believe. So, a tip for you all. When you see the pier, don’t just park up intending to walk quickly to it. It’s frakking miles away still!
Again, captured with Nokia 808 PureView – I do have to give it back shortly, so I’m getting some use from it!
EDIT: You’re a great audience, so here’s some more from this morning’s walk.
Thanks Nokia :)
PS, not sure why they referenced my old Twitter account. If you’re interested, I am @RealMichaelToye now.
