New Camera | Sony RX100 V + Sample Photographs

Two years have passed since my last camera purchase of the Panasonic Lumix LX100. Last week I decided to order the Sony RX100 V. I've had my eye on the Sony RX100 since for several years and I'm finally glad to have it. The photography and 4K video quality are incredible. I still love my Panasonic and I will continue to use it, but I love how much smaller the Sony is. Plus it has a flip up screen for vlogging which is something I didn't care for two years ago. Below are some photographs I took recently with the Sony RX100 V. I can't wait to bring it with me on my vacation to Virginia and Washington D.C. in a few weeks.

I would love to dive back into street and nature photography. I miss it. There was a time in my teenage years and during my early twenties when I would spontaneously go out with my camera just to take photographs. It wasn't to document a feeling or a memory, but for my pleasure alone. To be fair I had more time on my hands back then as I was on a college hiatus and working part-time.

As I grew older I slowly began to move away from the arts as adult responsibilities consumed me. I walked away from playing the piano, I took a step back from photography, and I don't even remember when was the last time I painted. As for writing, most of the writing I do these days are found here on my blog. I have a journal that I haven't touched in weeks, unfinished books and drafts, and ideas collecting dust. Often I have wondered if my walking away from the arts derived from exhaustion. The exhaustion of a renaissance woman with a dispersed passion for many things, instead of a focused passion for one or two things. Whatever the case may have been I would like to revisit the paint brushes, hear the scratching of my pen, feel the keys under my fingers, and hold time still again just for fun.
