Don't be afraid to call me out....I love a good discussion! My point was that before smartphones photographers would take their cameras just about everywhere. Vacations, short trips to the beach, museums, parks, etc. Now instead of taking their dslr they 'settle' for a smartphone. Overall the quality of photography in the last 5 years has gone down. There are always exceptions to the rule but the majority of people just take a snapshot at that museum with their phone and be done. If you want a real challenge all the time carry a real camera!
