Vacationing Close To Home - a Trip to Corpus Christi
The Lexington is a HUGE ship which also goes by the name "The Blue Ghost" because of it's unusual paint scheme and because radio propagandist Tokyo Rose wrongly announced several times that she had sunk.
I thoroughly enjoyed carrying my new, lightweight, Sony 6000. For a person who has been carting around heavy Nikon gear for years, the Sony was so light and easy and took great shots inside with limited light as well as in mixed light areas.
In the evening we took a two mile walk to a great seafood restaurant and it was easy to bring the small camera along. Returning from dinner, the low sunset light on the waterfront was perfect and we enjoyed stopping and chatting with some folks who were having toy sailboat races.
The following day we got to check out the art museum which didn't allow any photography but had some great art to see and study how the artists used light in creating their pictures. All in all, our little getaway was a great success and proved to me that you don't have to go far and spend a fortune - there are plenty of places within a few hours that are great to check out and discover.
Get out there and shoot, friends - have a good time and let me know what you find! Ciao!
