MAAT Reflection | Lisbon, Portugal

This photo of the MAAT Museum in Lisbon is Part I of a three-piece series of “My Daily Walk in Lisbon”.

With this series, I wanted to test the potential of my iPhone camera. Sometimes, the best camera is the one you have with you. With this photo, I can also say: The next camera is the one the security guards tolerate.

When I previously shot some photos at the MAAT Museum, the security gave me a hard time. No tripod here and no image there. So luckily, I knew my way around the Freedom of Panorama very well, so I knew which shots I could take for sure.

Now, armed with only my iPhone, I wanted to see what was possible.

I had this exact shot in mind for some time. I had set up my tripod here last time but couldn’t get the picture before security politely asked me to move. Now just using the phone, I noticed the security guard coming in my direction again. He looked at me, he looked at the phone… and then he turned around.

Isn’t this incredible? I mean, phone cameras are so powerful nowadays. Why do people make a big fuss if you use a DSLR, but anyone can take photos with a mobile phone? I experienced the very same thing in Dubai as well.

But okay, I won’t complain more. If I can get the shot I envision only with my phone, then the phone it is. After all, I’m happy I could finally get my vision captured.
