Worse, this is not entirely a case of "quick, what have I got on my desk that I can shoot?" I had been planning a shot of the phone for some time, but I wanted to compose it a bit better and actually make it a halfway artsy shot.
Anyway, as much as I dislike some of the bloat that Samsung puts on their phones, they also include a few nice touches as well. I like how I can pop out the stylus and immediately scribble down a quick note without having to power up, sign in or run anything. I've used it a few times when I needed to save a thought.
Merry always looks so much more dramatic in black and white. Though this is not by intentional design, I have noticed that all three pictures of her that I have included in my "picture a day" so far this year have been in black and white.
