“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.” -Ernst Fischer

These photographs were captured for the Darkroomers “Urban Decay” Quarterly Themed Competition with my new (to me) Canon G1X. I’ve taken to carrying around this advanced point-and-shoot in my purse and I love it! I even got an Eye-Fi Card for it so I can still share photos on the go, even though this camera doesn’t have built-in wifi.

I still use my iPhone for photos often, but if I want quality (and I don’t have my Canon 7D with me) I’ll grab the G1X. It shoots RAW and has fully manual controls, making it far superior to most smartphones available. Smaller cameras a great for street photography when you don’t want to carry a lot of gear or attract a lot of attention. One of these days I’ll get a mirrorless ILC, but for now, this little camera does the job.
