The Best Camera is ... #01 by David Fattibene

The Best Camera is the one you have with you, these simple words has been repeated for decades. Yesteday I was travelling for work and I had to cross the Lago Maggiore, with my Nokia C5 (and its crappy camera).

By the way It was 20min of fun, wondering on the composition and expecting a little more of bokee... (I have no idea how small the sensor can be...)
