We are off on our two year adventure.
It is ALWAYS hard to go to Florida because there is always a time when we have to say goodbye and leave again.
Of course we had to hit St. Augustine. We visited our favorite beach and the always fun Lighthouse.
If you are not a photographer, this blog post might not interest you.
Here goes. I have jumped ship. I have always been a Canon girl. From the very beginning, waaaaay back when it was a Rebel, then a Mark II, then Mark III, then Mark IV…you get the picture. I had also invested heavily in Canon glass with six L lenses.
I sold it all. All of it.
And bought something I swore I never would. A Sony. Specifically an Alpha 7r III paired with Zeiss 35 1.4 and 50 1.4 lenses. It was hard to turn from all I have ever really known as a photographer and learn a new system. I’m still learning. I’ll hit a button that used to be where something else was on my Mark IV all the time. It feels smaller in my hand but it is lighter which was kind of the appeal while trekking across Europe. I have to say that the resolution is AMAZING. It truly is. I will pixel peep and it is never, ever not tack sharp. That was something that was beginning to bug me with my Canon gear. I would nail the focus but sometimes it was only acceptable. I had evolved as an artist and my standards were different. The technology had evolved and I wanted to go with it.
I will always love you Canon. It’s not you, it’s me.
This was the last frame I took with my beloved 5D Mark IV.
Our fave place.
They’re building a house on this field now, which makes me very, very sad.
Mikey, being a capable photographer in her own right, went out and shot Paige tonight. It’s interesting to see the lighting and posing from a teenage perspective.
The trip this year had a few unexpected surprises.
And just like that…he’s four.
It’s important to remember the past with those who shaped it and to pass that priceless heritage along to your own children.
We explored Ha Ha Tonka with Grandma and Grandpa after filling up on turkey.
I blinked and she was grown up.
I. Love. This. So. Much.
Yes, we've moved. We are going to miss our Clarksville friends immensely. In fact, Austin's face captures the collective emotion of the family leaving Tennessee. But alas, we are now in Missouri and settling in.
It is always humbling and awe-inspiring to reflect on how the Lord has provided for us...and me personally, over the years. I am in no way worthy of the grace and forgiveness He bestows upon me time and time again and yet ... He does. He always does.
