(scroll for english)(на русском, чуть ниже) 🇫🇷 Somptueuse et glamour, Venise est bâtie sur 118 îlots, reliés par 400 ponts. Elle cache beaucoup de trésors comme ce #Palais des doges, la résidence du gouvernement pendant près de sept siècles, et des services secrets de la Sérénissime. Un lieu de pouvoir, ce ravissant édifice #gothique et néoclassique abritait aussi la prison des Plombs où Casonova fût enfermé, le célèbre séducteur vénitien, seul évadé qu’ait connu cette prison.

Can you tell that this photo (and all my other recent Europe photos) was taken with a phone camera?
My camera broke two weeks before my trip, and it was too much of a hassle to get it fixed. I considered getting a new one, but couldn't bring myself to pay for something so expensive that I barely use much - I only take out my camera for my travels; otherwise it would be lying untouched in my drawer.
Thankfully, I upgraded my phone early this year (goodbye iPhone!) and this phone comes with a pretty good camera and large memory storage space. I knew that I could take decent photos with this phone, but I was a bit skeptical. Would a smartphone camera be sufficed? And most importantly, would my photos turn out okay?
The true test came at night. I didn't have a tripod with me when I took this photo, and I was surprised with the outcome! I didn't expect a phone to be able to capture night shots pretty well. I thought they would come out all blurry, especially since it is usually a challenge to take good photos in low light condition with a proper camera itself.
Obviously, there are limitations with a phone camera, but overall I'm happy with the photos taken with my phone. I also like how fast and convenient to capture moments with a phone, as I usually have it easily available in my hands. I guess it's true with the saying that the best camera is the one you have with you!
Looks like I wouldn't be rushing to get a new camera anytime soon. And I have one less item to carry on my travels.
