It’s been three weeks since Irma, and there are still several thousand people in my area without power. 😦 I feel so, so bad for them. I hope the situation is resolved soon.
The good news? There are no hurricanes forming in the Atlantic right now. Another couple weeks, and the season will be over until next year.
Irma ripped half the screens out of the lanai, leaving it open to the elements. Mostly, this has been okay, as I can now take pics of the birds at the feeder without scaring them. I draped chamo cloth across the bottom half of the glass doors and shoot through that. This is a female cardinal. She’s tinted red by the rising sun, and I bumped the color, which is why she looks more red than usual. 🙂 There are a couple drops of water hanging from her beak.
In the next week or so, I’ll be getting a new camera from Amazon. After doing the research, and arguing with myself about whether or not to spend the money, I clicked the buy button. It’s an older model, the Sony A6000 mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses. I opted for a package, so it’s arriving with two of them.
This is a step up from my Canon prosumer model, and I hope it will make me a better photographer. It’s reputed to be especially good in low-light situations, and my Canon sucks at that. The cool thing is, if I want to upgrade the camera body in the future, the lenses will still work. Using adapters, I could even use them on different brands, like Nikon, Canon, or Fuji.
This model gets raves from almost everyone. Check it out on YouTube. 🙂
I will be keeping and still using the Canon. Nothing beats that massive zoom. Heh.
Maybe I’ll be able to post some pics from the new camera next time I post. In the meantime, hope everything is going well with you.
