After spending more than 24 years at the Baltimore Sun taking pictures with expensive professional cameras to cover assignments, I was in no hurry to use my iPhone as a camera unless I had to. I was asked to consider doing more with my images on social media, so I dusted off the Instagram account I set up over a year ago and started looking at other Instagrammers’ work. Each click sent me to another corner of the world as I viewed amazing images being taken with iPhones. The creativity I saw was truly spectacular. I was inspired and now on a mission to see what I could do with mine. I have been posting images for the last six weeks and will continue to share my views of Baltimore. More of my images can be found @lloyd1fox on Instagram.
