Saying Goodbye To South Florida

After just over a month in South Florida, my time having fun in the sun is finally coming to an end. I was excited to leave the brutally frigid Toronto winter and embrace the warm, tropical Miami air. I had my usual list compiled of all the places I wanted to shoot as I always do before I venture anywhere. However, my list doesn’t usually get fulfilled for one reason or another due to unforeseen circumstances. I often take for granted the amount of time I have to complete my wish-list.

In Miami I was fortunate to have stayed in a condo situated 48 stories up in the downtown area (as I mentioned in a previous article) which was facing due west and perfect for capturing sunsets. Every evening that I was at my temporary abode, I would patiently watch the sky hoping to capture something spectacular through my lens.

A Comparison of the Canon 70D and Sony A7

I feel like I have been trapped indoors in the Great White North for ages due to the horrific Toronto weather. I have had the worst cabin fever ever and was dying to be able to shoot outdoors but my body immediately rejects the cold as soon as I take one step outside. So here I am in beautiful sunny Miami Beach and am finally able to dust off the cobwebs from my camera and shoot outside.

I have been wanting to do a comparison between my Canon 70D with 18-135mm STM lens and the Sony A7 and 24-70mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss lens for awhile but hadn’t had the opportunity until now.
