A life outside the phone

At the bus stop, I was watching the most stunning sunrise I had ever seen. Fog on the ground, dark clouds rising and the sun colouring it all into a spectacular view. My ever present camera was left on the kitchen table. Desperately I pulled out my smartphone. Due to me being such snob when it comes to cameras, I had set the lowest quality on the photos. Because I only use the camera in the phone for unimportant photos, like price tags I need to remember and such. I fumbled to increase the quality, so it would be a photo worthy a life outside the phone. The bus arrived. And I left the best photo I never took behind me.
