Exploring Mexico City by iPhone

cityshotHere’s a great post by National Geographic’s Andrew Evans. Andrew spent a few days exploring Mexico City with no Internet connection and no “heavy cameras.” The only gear he had was his iPhone.

His photos are great and make me want to visit what Andrew calls, “The most exciting city on earth.” Has anyone been? Are you a pro photographer or traveler who’s ditched the pro-level gear for a day with the┬áiPhone? If so, let me know.

    I lived in Mexico City for two months last year. I hadn’t been there before then and was very pleasantly surprised. It’s a great city. Sure, there are some not-so-nice sections, but I loved it, and would love to go back and live there again.

    I’ve been living and traveling outside of the US for 9+ months now, and I think that my iPhone (iPhone 4) is the single most useful thing I have with me (I even wrote a Kindle book about iPhone apps for travelers). To be honest, though, I try not to use it as a camera whenever possible, with panoramas being the exception. I find the photos to be significantly less quality than even my $120 Panasonic point-and-shoot, and I really like my point-and-shoot’s 8x optical zoom. Of course, I use the iPhone when I don’t have any other camera, and it’s great for that.

    I’m a long-time Home Work listener and new reader to the blog here. I’m digging the iPhone-related travel stuff. I’m currently in Tbilisi, Georgia, and I’ll try to take some good pics here with my phone and submit them to your weekly Travel iPhoneography feature. Keep up the great work!
