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!
It’s springtime which means it’s time for the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival – beautiful flower beds and flower sculptures around the park, and lots of photo opportunities!
Here’s some of the many “sculptures”:
Today we attended the traveling show Luzia, currently about half an hour from us in Orlando. 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)
I happened to go upstairs this morning before my walk, and caught great sunrise photos from our balcony – I then took some more with our home in the foreground …
Yesterday we drove into St Petersburg and visited this spectacular glass sculpture collection adjacent to the Morean Arts Center – so pleased to see “photography encouraged” at an art gallery, too! Here’s lots of pictures, but really you should go see for yourselves …
At least until we move, I can capture great sunsets!
