Flickr a Day 297: ‘Lost and Found But Useless’

Composition and beautiful bokeh—and story behind the pic—make today’s pick. I also like the contrasty colors set against the device’s drab and recognizable Apple logo. Cacho Menguito shot self-titled “Lost and Found But Useless” on Sept. 13, 2009, in Sarushima, Japan. “My friend found a 16GB white iPhone 3G on the beach, in the water”, he says. “Someone must be very sad now”. I’ll say.

He used Canon EOS Kiss X2 and EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens to capture our Day taker. The camera is better known as the 450D here in the States. Vitals: f/5, ISO 100, 1/125 sec, 45mm. Cacho posted with black border, which I removed. His Creative Commons license allows adaptation, not that I see cropping that way. The black border takes away from the photo’s appeal.

Cacho joined Flicker in September 2007 but hasn’t posted in five years.
