Flickr member L. Shanley has posted a very nice image of (Ronald Reagan) National Airport in Washington, DC taken with a Sony RX100.
National is one of the few major airports I’ve not been to over 50 times (Dulles 100s). I avoided it because the idiots in Congress made it close by 10 pm because they didn’t like the sound of planes overhead. Noise isn’t okay for them but it’s okay for the rest of us. I was once in a US Air plane bound for Hartford and it was 9:59 pm and we were rolling down the runway. The clock struck 10 pm and the pilot had to cancel the takeoff because his wheels weren’t off the ground at 10 pm. We went back to the gate and we had to stay the night in a hotel near the airport, at our own expense. This did not endear me to Congress or the FAA for letting them make this insane rule.
I remember landing there once in a small commuter (curtain between pilots and passengers) just after it was renamed “Ronald Reagan National Airport” and the pilot came on the intercom and said: “We’ll be landing at Washington National Airport in ten minutes. Sorry, but I refuse to use its new name, George Washington was a great President.”
Many of us clapped.
Flickr member Yoav Aziz has posted this excellent interior shot taken in Copenhagen, Denmark with his Sony RX100. The roof angles, window cut-outs, wooden floor and light and shadow on walls and ceiling make this a great image to explore.
Flickr member Dimitris_D has posted an excellent image of a side of the Pompidou Center in Paris, France taken with his Sony RX100. I’ve loved this building since first seeing it and this is an exceptionally nice exterior shot of it.
My flickr contact whig has posted a dream-like image of morning light in Japan taken with his Sony RX100.
West Cornwall, Connecticut. We hiked up to Pine Swamp to see what the beavers have been up to and the entire beaver ecosystem has been deserted, the beavers seem to have moved on. This happens when a predator moves in or they run out of easy-to-get food or both. Anyway, the place is totally overgrown and tough to walk through and I doubt we’ll be going back until there’s snow on the ground. Nice reflections though.
ian mcintosh has posted this high contrast restaurant interior taken with his Sony RX100. Very clean image.
Kent, Connecticut. This is a repeat of a group of trees I’ve photographed a lot as they’re quite spectacular.
Hiking south along the Appalachian trail on Schaghticoke Ridge we crossed Thayer Brook where we came upon a small grove of large tulip trees. One tree has three trunks, the other two.
Some of these images were taken with a new Sony RX100 II, some were taken with a Ricoh GR. In short, the Sony’s articulated LCD is wonderful for these kinds of shots but the Ricoh’s ergonomics and speed are second to none. Both cameras have their strengths and weaknesses which are overlapping so I thought it would be good to carry both.
This last one was taken with the Ricoh GR, the rest were taken with the Sony RX100 II.
My flickr contact John Holland has posted this fantastic image taken under a mushroom looking up at its structure. Note he used a Sony RX100 II’s tilting LCD screen to frame the image.
Flickr member planet arrakis has taken a great picture of a Volkswagen pickup that’s been chopped as a lowrider in what looks like Japan with a Sony RX100.
Flickr member Ian Smith has posted a great image of two iconic buildings in London, UK taken with his Sony RX100. Here’s his great commentary:
The battle between the two architects has raged for years. Richard Rogers creates the Lloyds Building; so right next to it Norman Foster creates the Willis Building; and then he builds 30 St. Mary Axe (‘The Gherkin’); so Richard Rogers returns to create 122 Leadenhall Street (‘The Cheesegrater’).
Flickr member john frenzel has posted an excellent street shot in Florence, Italy taken with his Sony RX100.
Flickr member franmare took this great image in Paris with her Sony RX100. I love the sense of scale between the people and the columns and the buildings and street in the background are also in sharp focus. This is an excellent image.
Flickr member Chris has taken a very nice image of a cactus bloom with his Sony RX100.
Flickr member Robert Yanal took this great image of the shadows cast by large buildings in Chicago from the top of one of them (The Hancock building with the two antennas) with his Sony RX100.
Flickr member Liping Yang has taken a great image of young people hanging out on some steps in Beijing with his Sony RX100.
