The Echo…cho…ho…o…in a photograph

I’ve grown to look for it to happen. But most of the time, it just occurs. It is one of those things that makes an image that much more wonderful. It is sometimes referred to as an echo.

Sony A7 Pretty and Pretty Perfect

If you are looking for a great street camera, portrait maker, or a fantastic option to your DSLR, the a7 is at least for me, a pretty perfect camera. It does just about everything I need it to do for nearly all of the kinds of photography I love to shoot. And it does it pretty darn well.
