Professional photographer finds iPhone a fun way to capture a moment, by Pamela McLoughlin

"In the exhibit, 'Iphoneography,' local photographer Mike Ross captured an image of the perfectly waving American flag against a blue sky when he ran to Home Depot. One of the pictures in his show is of an interesting parking booth key hanging board that he spotted while doing a job at Union League Cafe.

'The iPhone is awesome,' Ross said."
