with “Traditionally cameras have been used as technology tools to capture people, places and events and store them as memories. Today, mobile technologies have added new capabilities to standalone cameras especially the ones in the mobile phones! The image and video capture applications in camera phones being used to capture people, places and events are well-known! This paper introduces how the image capture application of camera phones can be put to use when the focus shifts from capturing family, friends and events to learning events! A case study based on the archived camera phone images of the author’s will throw light on how the image capture functionality of the camera phones is used to record the response in the form of capture behaviour to the stimulus in the environment and how self reflection over stimulus response behaviour throw light on work-life goals and leading to possible regulatory activities! The study has been primarily motivated to find an explanation and an application on the huge collection of camera phone images captured by the author over a period of time!
