Travel Photography

I took them both. My Sony RX100 and one of my Nikon DSLRs, the Nikon D600. For the Nikon, I brought along a 50mm prime and a 24-120mm F4 zoom.

The Nikon kit is heavy. And, in the Florida heat, a tad uncomfortable.

We spent yesterday at Universal Studios in Orlando. I decided to leave the big DSLR behind. I took the very small Sony as my camera.

I have to say that it performed well above my expectations for a compact point and shoot camera. Well enough that I doubt I would have captured any significantly better images with the DSLR particularly given the location and the time of day.

It was quite liberating to walk the park with a camera that could easily fit in my pocket when needed. No hassles when doing the rides.

Here are a few photos from the day.

  • Lots of digging but no joy in finding the break in the well's water line. 400 feet is a lot of digging. #

  • First indoor ride of the fall season. When the temperature falls below 10 degrees, it is time to pull out the indoor trainer. Sigh. #
