Just posted this one on 500px. I stopped off on the way home in Hermosa near 22nd as the sun was going down. The sky was looking pretty dramatic. So wandered down to the ocean. Hope you like it…

I’ll be looking out for some more dramatic shots when the weather gets rough. I’m still pushing the Sony A7rii and this weekend I’m hoping to put the 24-240mm lens through it’s paces. I’ll let you know how it goes…

Hope you like it!

Hi all,

Still getting to know the new Sony A7Rii and am loving it more and more… I was walking about the weekend before last, when it was a little windy, a took this photo of the Manhattan Pier with an old Canon FD 28mm lens on the A7Rii.

I was using manual focus with focus assist and the built in stabilization, which is a fantastic advantage when using old lenses on the Sony body!! So far the depth of contrast and color from the Sony far exceeds anything else I have used. I am really looking forward to using some first class Zeiss lenses and think I will have to rent a couple for a weekend try out. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Thanks again for taking a look,

Just walking around on Hermosa Beach when the weather was a little less pleasant and left the beach a little empty, I grabbed a chance for this late afternoon shot with the new Sony A7Rii and an old Canon FD 28mm manual focus just topped it off with a few sailing boats enjoying the high breeze before  returning to Redondo King Harbor…

I was just inspired by another blog, Jean’s Photography, as there was a picture of a later Scrabble Board that I was admiring. I remebered this shot I took at the Ojai Resort and Spa of an old scrabble board they had on display. So I thought I would post it again. Hope you like it!!
