30 Days of Pictures: Day 14

Day 14: A picture of something you can never imagine your life without

EDIT: It was supposed to be "someone" not "something" but I'm not changing it.

Last weekend, I had the incredible opportunity to attend The Masters. It was one of the more memorable weekends of my life. Rubbing shoulders with the elite, glad-handing with celebrities, athletes and professional golfers. Simply amazing. I will never forget it.

All weekend, I was surrounded with opportunities to take incredible photos of Augusta National and the people I met. However, mobile phones and cameras are not allowed within the grounds of Augusta National. Imagine, a place on planet Earth where tens of thousands of people have no mobile devices. It's like a technology dead-zone. No tweets, no Facebook posts, no SMS or MMS messages, nothing.

I felt naked without my trusted iPhone. I was missing an appendage. I felt the phantom vibrating in my pocket all weekend. I wanted to call, text and take pictures and videos of the sights and sounds of The Masters, yet here I was without my iPhone.

To say that I cannot imagine life without my iPhone is putting it lightly. It's my work, my life, my connection to my family and the world around me.
