A traveling photographer should always have a camera with him, even though sometimes it gets awkward.  They are heavy, expensive and sometimes you just want to get away from your work.  That is why I just love my iPhone.  The newer iPhones, the 5S and the 6 have an excellent camera built right in.  I was boating on the Old Pearl River in Louisiana, and ran into the unexpected.  A swimming wild hog, part of a colony of twenty or so that have populated parts of the Honey Hole Swamp on the Old Pearl River.  It was a picture that had to be taken, and the iPhone worked just fine.
