Everyday Neta

Another take on how phone-cams are changing the definition of picture-worthy:
As the mundane is elevated to a photographic object, the everyday is now the site of potential news and visual archiving. Sending camera-phone photos to major news outlets and moblogging are one end of a broad spectrum of everyday and mass photojournalism using camera phones. What counts as newsworthy, noteworthy and photo-worthy spans a broad spectrum from personally noteworthy moments that are never shared to intimately newsworthy moments to be shared with a spouse or lover.
