"No photographer is as good as the simplest camera."
- Edward Steichen
The parking lot image was photographed on 35mm film with a plastic Ansco Vision I camera. Simple tool that cost about $5.00. Fixed shutter speed; fixed lens opening and focus free-i.e. fixed focus. Two choices- where you stand and when you push the shutter. Aim, push the shutter release and that's it.
In this case the camera was loaded with infrared-film - the reason for the red filter pasted over the lens.
These days you can spend some $7,000 (Leica M9) for a camera. That will buy a lot of Ansco Vision cameras. Now with the Vision I you also get a built in flash. The Leica doesn't offer that!
Not suggesting that you stop using your Leica/Nikon/ Canon/....... cameras. No they offer many choices and are able to produce fine images. They offer a photographer more control of the final image. A photographer can craft an unique image by using focusing, various lens openings and shutter speeds.
Every now and then, put away the expensive camera, pick up something simple and take a "walk about". When photographs appear, aim and push.
