I went back tonight looking for holiday images from years before. Instead, I stumbled across this image – taken on December 17, 2011 – 3 years ago yesterday – at the Marin Highlands.
On that lovely Sunday, Doug Kaye and I met at Rodeo Beach, explored that amazing area and then headed up the hill to the headlands. While we were fooling around, I caught him taking this shot of me.
What might be different today is that we’d both be using different cameras. In this shot, he’s shooting with one of his big Nikon DSLR’s. And I’m shooting with my Canon 5D Mark II with the big 70-200mm f/2.8L lens on it.
Fast forward three years – I’d be shooting with my Fujifilm X-E2 and, most likely, Doug would be shooting with his new Sony Alpha A7. We wouldn’t be able to detect much difference in our images – in fact, they might be even better.
So much for my search for holiday photos tonight. I’ll try again tomorrow!
