Not My Type
I like my camera. It is a nice camera and I have some decent lenses. I'm lucky to have it, and many of the shots I've taken I could not have gotten with a lesser camera.
That said, I do have to laugh when people tell me my camera takes nice pictures. It's not that I don't appreciate the compliment. Believe me, I really do. Feedback on my photos is my catnip, and positive feedback is my extra special good kind of catnip. It's the underlying assumption that good cameras make good pictures that makes me laugh.
All that was a long preamble to me wanting to point out that though I took more than a few pictures of this Junque Shop in New Orleans with my good camera and my fancy lenses, it was this picture, taken with my merely adequate iPhone that was my favorite. So there.
