Journey of a body on this earth



I’m back at Mare Island.  There were so many photo opportunities there.  Incredible!   Instead of my Nikon I used my Sony A7.  I really love that camera.  It’s so much easier to carry around.

  1. what a great shot –

  2. Aaand it do a fabulous job!!

  3. I like the moodiness of this shot

  4. Feels like a timeless photo – the stars and then the “50” on the door are elements that keep unfolding here….

  5. I love, and want the A7

  6. I would love to have that A7 too. Nice work.

  7. Magic shot. Love the dark mood of your composition. Don’t want any other camera right now because I have my X-T1. But I follow your temptation to sell your Nikon. I dumped my full-frame Nikon D800 and 5 prime lenses and switched to Fuji’s mirrorless system. 1/3 of the weight and the electronic view finder delivers live view in optical view finder quality. But gear does not matter anyhow. Except one area: print. I still would like to have 36 MP per image to be able to print large formats. But I recognized that people are selling 30×20 cm or 60×40 cm more often than A1/A2 formats. And the Fuji delivers images which can handle that perfectly. But if you continue to have A7 on the menu I will take a closer look… one day… may be 🙂

    • Thank you about the magic. :). Those are all good points and the mp is especially worth noting. How bid are our prints or who wants prints ultra huge. Not many. I think it’s worth the switch to mirror less. I used the 16-35 and loved that lens! So I’m giving you camera info anyway :). Lol. It came with a kit lens 28-70 f/4 but I didn’t much like it. It was a cheap lens. Anyway I totally get the switch!

  8. I’m trying to find one word to describe that photo.

  9. It’s surreal! I love the stars. I see a crucifix in the center, and cheese grater, and a door to…the stars perhaps? It’s beautiful.

    I’m tempted by the Sony A7 camera too, but still need the DSLR for my long lens, fast focusing work. I bought the Df because it packed a lot of good stuff in a smaller package. I’d like to Nikon improve it and make it smaller if possible. I’d get another one if they did.

    • Thank you! I think it’s an anchor but a cross works! I’m still keeping the Nikon but boy oh boy is the Sony handy! I suppose if I had a variety of lenses I might give up the Nikon but I have so much invested in it and it’s such a great camera. Thank you for your comments!

  10. I’m liking what you are doing. Very different tones to your photographs.
