Whenever I'm asked "which is the best camera?" I pretty much respond: "the one you have on you." In fact, most of the images in this book were taken with my cell phone simply because I always have it with me.
This is not only a book about street photography but a visual diary, or collection of quirky, unusual and sometimes just plain weird photos I've taken over the course of the last decade.
As a street photographer, I need to be an assiduous walker. My sneakers often take me to little known, hidden corners, seaweed strewn (and sometimes stinky) beaches and really cool back alleys of my rather small island city of Victoria, BC.
I've also included images of curiosities I've seen throughout my travels.
Everyone sees the world differently and this is my collection of the quirkiness that I call life.
Walk With Me is a photography collection taken by Debra Schoenberger on her travels around the world. What makes Walk With Me special is that these are not the stunning photographs that make you stop and stare, but rather a showcase of the minutiae of everyday life. Most of these photographs are taken with her cellphone and show everyday things about life around the world. From footwear to food, subway rides to scenery, flowers to fashion, these pictures are the little details of the world. Since there is not a lot of context to the pictures, for me the pictures showed the things that bring us together as well as what makes us all unique. Another accomplishment is to show that you do not have to be a trained photographer or have a fancy camera to take meaningful pictures, as Debra said, the best camera is the one you have on you. Overall, an interesting collection of photography that encourages exploration, adventure and looking at the world differently.

About the Author / Photographer:
"My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with pouring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me.
I am a documentary photographer and street photography is my passion. Some of my images have been chosen by National Geographic as editor's favourites and are on display in the National Geographic museum in Washington, DC. I also have an off-kilter sense of humour so I'm always looking for the unusual.
