Stumbling through San Antonio in the Heat. Trusty RX10iii Swinging by My Side.



I was down in San Antonio yesterday doing the routine human stuff. Buying some groceries for my octogenarian parents and making sure their air conditioning was working, visiting with my in-laws, and acting as a chauffeur for my wife. But I carved out the time between 3 and 5 pm to grab a camera and head to downtown San Antonio to see what might be new since I last roamed through, well over a year ago. No great art here, only the realization that the camera works as a motivator to get me out looking and walking.

It was hot but I was sporting a new hat that worked well and an old, white shirt from REI that seems to have built-in refrigeration capabilities. A nice time to be out and about.

Kirk any chance you have some studio portraits using any version of the RX10? Or any kind of lit portrait? I am really interested in any of these cameras as potential portrait shooters. Yes I know, smaller sensor and less out of focus bits and all that, but if you had something to put on the blog that would be great. And do you prefer the reach of the iii or the speed of the ii or i? Thanks.
