Preserving Another Bit of History

It seems like whenever something really interesting shows up that would make a great photograph, I don't have my camera with me and I have to resort to using my cell phone (as I did in this case). I was in D.C. for a job interview this morning, and the meeting was in an office directly across the street from the old Navy hospital, one of the most historic buildings in southeast Washington. Not having seen it before, I thought it was worth a picture, particularly since it's one of those instances where so much care is being put into restoring it to its original glory.

But while the building is pretty, the photo isn't worth any discussion on shading, shutter speed, lighting, etc. Only so much to do with a Motorola camera phone!!

Yeah, camera phones are less than ideal, but certainly better than nothing! I think you've done this (because the picture is clear) but you might want to check and see if you have the resolution set to the highest setting. Also, if you have photo editing software (iPhoto?) you can really improve those cell phone shots....ask me how I know!
