Who says iPhone isn’t inspirational, or aspirational? I shot this portrait of my daughter’s iPhone 5 on June 27, 2013, to accompany its Craigslist posting. If I rightly recall, we changed cellular carriers, promoting upgrades and sale of the older devices. Normally, the smartphones are wiped before photoshoots, but her home screen made me smile—and what a terrific way to catch potential buyers’ interests.

I captured the moment using Fujifilm X100, at 1:26 p.m. PDT. Vitals: f/4, ISO 1600, 1/60 sec, 23mm.
