Orlando Road Trip Today
We just had to have some fun today so we took an ART DAY and headed towards Orlando to visit a good friend and say good bye to my Sony a7. Good bye! I truly didn't like the Sony a7 and often had bad results with the auto focus especially shooting video. My cheap Lumix FZ80 seriously out performed the Sony a7, so I decided to get a another Lumix - a better one for still photography. I absolutely LOVE these cameras and I'm getting fantastic results. So again, good bye Sony a7 - can't say that enough!
Thank you Colonial Photo & Hobby for taking my trade-in and hooking me up with my new long-zoom camera better built for my wilderness travels.
Our second stop was to visit Dan Hess and the Art & History Museums - Maitland. Dan and Rebecca worked together and he's the ultimate prep person, co-worker, artist and friend.

Then we were off to the Orlando Museum of Art to catch Stephen Althouse's METANOIA. Wonderful large digital works on black background featuring objects from around a farm. The images to me are a study of not only the objects, a master class in form, composition and line. The work is very pleasing and draws one in to see the fine details of the objects. It's very much like two-dimensional sculpture. It's really wonderful.
On the way home just about an hour and forty-five minutes away, we were treated to some rain which followed us home to Tampa. It was a wonderful ART DAY and I'm so glad to be Sony free.
