Lately I have been drawn to self-imposed limitations after reading David duChemin's advice about how to foster creativity.  This is an idea I plan on exploring further.  A couple of years ago during a trip to Maine, I decided to only use my iPhone.  It was quite liberating and it made me look at the subject a little differently.  To view those images, click here.
