On last Saturday’s adventure I took Stacy to the Cane Ridge Meeting House since she’d never been there. Unlike the totally peaceful, inspired visit I had with mom and dad last year, this visit was hurried between a church picnic outside, and another church’s service inside with a tour guide somewhere in there. Needless to say, it didn’t lend itself to photography let alone contemplation.

One thing I did take away from the visit was the (re)affirmation that I’m ready for a new camera, specifically the Sony A7 II. It’s not only full frame and mirrorless (meaning it’s silent), but for what I primarily photograph, it has an ISO that goes to 25600. That means it’s scary great in low light situations like Cane Ridge. It would allow great detail. It would significantly remove those nasty sensor lines and grain.Did I mention that it shoots scary good video? So, it’s got me thinking of taking an expensive leap (body and just one lens would be around 3K). But maybe the Lumix GH4 would be better. Also scary good with an emphasis on great video. Plus, with an adaptor, it will take my Canon lenses. They’re not great lenses unfortunately, but it would be a cheaper place to start. It’s too bad I didn’t take up bank robbery. I wouldn’t have such hard choices. Photo geeks, let’s hear your opinions. See, even in busy Cane Ridge there was inspiration. I love a good adventure!
