It's not about the tool...


I had a conversation last night with some friends about photography and how important the equipment is.  I used this shot I took with my new phone (Droid) to backup my argument that it's got nothing to do with the stuff you've got. 

Even I can't believe I took this with a phone. I'm not saying it's some award winning shot, but you have to admit it's pretty decent for something that makes phone calls, texts and updates your Facebook status too, right?

So what do you think?  Is it the photographer that makes the photograph or is it the camera?   Can anyone be a photographer now in the digital age or does it still take a certain amount of finesse and creative skill to get the right shots?
