The pause that refreshes

I was on a much-needed vacation getaway last week to pause and refresh. A little trip down to Miami to get one last blast of summer before facing the dreaded winter in Pennsylvania. It was just that, a vacation with my wife, and I tried my best to keep photography to a minimum. I even kept my DSLR at home and traveled with a smaller camera, the EOS M, in order to keep it on the lay-low. The camera is frustrating to use because of its touch screen interface but it provides decent results if you don’t inadvertently change settings while shooting, which is very easy to do and I did plenty

Next trip I’m taking my normal camera and will just deal with the extra weight and size. Although I was able to snap a few decent pics this time, I lost out on just as many photos because of equipment restraints. I’ll throw a few colorful South Beach themed photos up this week but I’ll start today with a black and white life guard shack.

    I like the picture a lot. I am quite interested in the EOS M series cameras as I want a second camera which is smaller but I can utilise my lenses smaller lenses with.

      It’s a nice little camera, especially if you’re a Canon user since your lenses can be used with full auto with an inexpensive adapter. I have the 22 and 11-22 lenses and they are fantastic little things. The camera can be frustrating because of the touch screen, is a little finicky and touchy. For photos of stationary subjects, like I prefer, it’s fine. The going rate of under $300 for the body with the 22, it’s a steal!
