cell phone photography

Several months ago, I tried to upgrade my cell phone to one that wasn't falling apart at the seams. The one I found turned out to be a camera with a cell phone glommed onto it. It did neither job well. So, I returned it for a phone that was more phone and less portmanteau. It turned out to have some cool photo features, including a night vision setting. Without my camera yet again, I spotted a power line sparking in tonight's snow storm that was causing the lights in an adjacent church to surge as if someone was messing with the dimmer. Reminds me a bit of the blizzard shots in Charlie Chaplin's Gold Rush.
