On Montreal (the city, not the band).

Camera phones have come a very long way. So much so that they can go toe to toe with the best point and shoots out there. I've become to rely more and more on my iPhone 7+ for everyday use. I can't carry the 5D everywhere, because it's big, bulky, and plays hell with my constantly shitty shoulder. 

So when me and my oldest friends were heading to Montreal for a bachelors weekend, I decided to leave the DSLR at home. I learned a few things that weekend.

1. Montreal is a gorgeous city. Like super gorgeous. From the European architecture of Old Montreal, to the amazing street art that runs up and down St. Catherine's, the beauty is nigh overwhelming.

2. Everyone in Montreal was super nice. As a lifelong asshole Bostonian, this confused and delighted me.

3. Lightroom mobile and Apples DNG Raw API are stupid powerful. Combine them with a little luck, great light, and a half decent eye, and you can make something really beautiful.
