Unusual Ways to Use Your Camera Phone

I canít believe how useful it is to always have a camera in my pocket. I use it for many more things than just taking photographs. For instance, when I park my car in a parking lot I photograph the floor number. I usually remember where Iíve parked my car, but just in case, I have it on my phone. When I park on the road, I photograph the sign of the nearest cross street. If I get lost, I at least know where to find the car.

Thatís not the only way I use the camera function on my phone. Last week I was in the doctorís waiting room and I found an article in a magazine I really wanted to read. I knew I wouldnít have time to finish it before I was called into his office, so I photographed each page and finished reading the article when I got home.

These days we are concerned about the spread of cancer, and skin cancer in particular. Sometimes we notice a spot on our body and wonder how long itís been there. So take a photograph of your skin (or a few photographs), then if a new spot or mole appears, youíll know how long itís been there.

Shopping and photographing prices is good way to find the best deal. Of course we could write the price down, or type it into our phones, but itís just easy to snap a photograph and compare prices later.

When I went shopping for curtains, I photographed the room I was buying them for, then when I was in the store I could compare the curtains I was looking at with the color of the room. Although it wasnít an exact color, it helped with the decision of which curtains to buy. Similarly with DIY projects, Iíve taken a photograph of a replacement part I need and gone to the store to buy one.

Recently I needed a new lock for my door. I phoned the locksmith and instead of coming to my house to do a quote, he asked me to photograph the lock, inside and out and then he knew which one to bring with him, and so he only came once and not twice.

One day someone knocked on my door and I was suspicious. People are known to knock on doors and if no oneís home, break in. So, as he walked away I took a photograph of him and one of his car with the license plate. I didnít need that photograph, but I had it just in case.
