My almost 99 year old mother watching me take pictures

Descanso Gardens, Flintridge, California.

 

It was a beautiful day to wheel my mother around these lovely gardens and unlike back home in Connecticut, here flowers were in bloom.

 

There was plenty of color but I’m very much into monochrome these days. The light on this small clump of flowers was compelling so I wheeled my mother into this little grove and spent ten minutes shooting here.

 

While the Sony RX100 II makes exceptionally fine images, it's controls are less than wonderful compared with the Ricoh GR. It's nice to have a second camera with a zoom lens but I reach for the Ricoh before the Sony most days if for no other reason, it's easier to use/control.
