Macro flowers

I just purchased a(nother!) new camera, the Sony A6400; it offers enhanced low light also being small and light (almost too small!) and while it doesn’t have the massive zoom of my other high zoom cameras although with the 18-200 lens I also purchased, it’s pretty good!

Testing the opposite view, I used the macro feature to take close-up views of flowers on my morning walk around town … none of these are edited (except for size); color/etc just straight from the camera – and I’m very impressed!

We’ve seen MANY Cirque Du Soleil shows over the years (Mystere, O (many times!), Ka, Dralion, Corteo, La Nouba, Quidam, Varekai, Delirium, Love, and the not so good Michael Jackson Immortal) but this was our first time for Luzia – and it was another great show! Spectacular costumes and acrobatic performances, and amazing use of waterfall effects …

Also nice was that photos were allowed (no flash, no video) so we have great memories of the show too:

Last night, even in the cold (for Florida) and windy weather, I went outside multiple times as the Moon was eclipsed by Earth, taking photos – with no tripod set up, it was a little tricky; and I stopped once I got the first full eclipse picture (past bed time!); but I’m quite pleased with the results … (click any image for bigger version)
