First Macro Shots with the Sony RX100

Today, I received the Raynox 250 +8 diopters macro lense for my wifes RX100 (she allows me to use it ;)) and a filter ring that you glue to the lense body. I decided to order the KIWII one, because I’m not so sure how well the magnetic version keeps the not too light Raynox lense. Also, it was just 18€ vs. the magnetic filter ring which was unbelievable 45€ (at Amazon).

The new old tree

Playing around with the RX100 after sunset. I wanted to make this look like an old photo from the 1920ies. Oh! And in truth it's our young tree in the garden, which we've planted nearly 2 1/2 years ago (it was already 2m height).

When seeing these clouds in front of the sun, I quickly grabbed the RX100 and tried the “dawn” scene settings, I’ve just read about in the RX100 book I started reading.

Back on the bike

More than a year ago, I started cycling to lose pounds, strengthen my neck and back and also for the good feeling when you’re back home. I work in an office job (sysadmin in a data center) and of course, I do have problems with my neck and back. I cycled a lot last year, but after a weeks (when my first parent time was over), I stopped cycling. Mainly because I had not planned it well. My last tour was in mid May 2014. Seriously, it’s time to start again.
