Testing my new Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN Lens

Early this year, I accidentally dropped my mirrorless camera right before going to the venue of my parents 50th anniversary party.  I was mad at myself and disappointed because I was supposed to use it for taking videos during that special event.  But as I always do, when I have important places to go to, I always bring two bodies with me so that I have a backup, and this practice served me well.

My Sony NEX 6 still turns on, but it couldn’t recognize the lens anymore.  When I returned home, I tried attaching my Nikon lens using an adapter and the camera was able to recognize it.  So it was just the lens that broke and not the camera which was a big relief for me.

Photo Project Theme Week 30 – Falling for Fall

Fall is my favorite season.  The weather is nice and the colors are beautiful.  I have not seen beautiful fall colors since we moved from Pennsylvania to Texas seven years ago.  So I really miss it.

This year, we were very blessed to be able to go to Oswego, NY to visit my brother-in-law and his wife and enjoy fall once again (even for just a week).   I was so ready to fall for fall once again.  The leaves in the Adirondacks where we were originally planning on visiting past peak  and most of the leaves have fallen but where we stayed, the leaves were just at peak or about to peak so we were there at the right time.   Prior to arrival, the area had 12 gorgeous days but then the wind came and blew a lot of the leaves off  but nevertheless it was still so beautiful.  I loved the crisp fresh air and the smell of pine needles,  the beautiful mix of leaves in shades of red, yellow and orange on the ground, the smell of forest after the rain, the green moss on rocks, and water from rivers, ponds, streams, lakes.  Wow!  Just amazing.   We don’t have this in Texas!

I captured so many photos from this trip that I have not even gone through looking at them all.  But I am so excited to share my photos so I scanned through them and picked one photo taken for each day we were in New York.
