IF you search you will see that MANY of my ‘Selfies My Way‘ have been taken at the magical ‘Castle in the Clouds‘. They have nice big mirrors with good lighting. Hard to resist.

A ‘selfie my way’ using a proper camera rather than my Google Pixel 2 phone. You can see why they say that the Canon grip on the EOS RP is pretty substantial.



49th post in this “Taking Selfies My Way” series.

This was at ‘The Flume‘, New Hampshire, on Monday, May 27, 2019. Yes, I am most often seen with a camera in front of my face. In this case, my 1-month old Canon EOS RP with the 24-105mm zoom lens.

It was Mother’s Day and we headed off to the ocean at Hampton Beach despite the gloomy, cold weather. It was our third trip to Hampton — and as with the last two times we had a wonderful, fulfilling lunch at ‘Jumping Jack Java‘ — our new favorite eating place south of Portsmouth. Suffice to say, given the weather, Hampton Beach was not crowded. But, it was. Still a fair number of people. My first trip there with my new Canon EOS RP. Only took my 35mm RF lens. I wanted to get used to it. That it has a macro capability helped.

Given the unusually cold Spring all the flowers were not out — even on the coast. But, they had two displays. I captured as many to share with YOU. Enjoy.

Taken at Aubuchon, Alton, NH with my new Canon EOS RP with a 24-105mm lens. As some of you know I can’t resist taking pictures of flowers. So, please get used to being bombarded with more and more flowers as the weather gets warmer.

I Sold My Sony FE 90mm Lens On eBay In Less Than 1 Hour!

It really is getting time for me to get a new camera — in place of my aging Sony a7 II. But, I am still going to wait until late March. No point getting one while it is cold and there is snow on the ground. So, I am willing to wait until Spring. But, I wanted to start getting ready.

Last Summer I sold 6 or 7 of my Sony lenses, Full-Frame & APS-C along with my Sony a6500. I was down to two lenses: this 90mm Prime and my trusty 24-240mm zoom. Now I am just down to the zoom.

I listed the 90mm, on eBay, on a whim on Friday morning. I set a ‘Buy-it-Now’ price at $760. That was a win-win price. I would be happy with it and it would still represent a good deal for the buyer. Well this gentleman, from Texas, figured it out. I had also thrown in two of my six Sony batteries to sweeten the deal. So, it all worked out.

I am HAPPY. I am fairly sure I am now going to get the Canon EOS RP that was announced yesterday. Unlike with the Sony I am not going to get a bunch of lenses. I am going to limit myself to three at most four BUT here is the crazy thing. Canon lenses, compared to Sony, are so affordable that I can get TWO lenses for the price it costs for one Sony. That is the main reason I am switching from Sony. The lenses were way too expensive.
