It has taken a while for me to get some of my older photos onto my website. But here are photos taken when we went to Rome. Infrared images taken with the Sony NEX-3, and visible-light images taken with the Canon 7D. Owing to the small size and lightweight of the Sony NEX-3, carrying two cameras was not a problem at all (even with a camera as big as the Canon 7D. Continue reading Rome Trip
