Monday In A Moment #38 | On Springing Forward


1 :: Save the Daylight – This week is a weird week for those of us who live in Germany with family in the states as the US just went through daylight savings time. This means that instead of being seven hours in time difference from Texas, we’re now only six hours ahead. Germany doesn’t change their clocks until the 30th of March. Crazy right? Speaking of daylight, I am so beyond psyched that the sun is BACK! Even though it’s wreaking havoc with my sleep schedule, it’s super nice to wake up with the sun at 7:30 am! Look out Deutschland, we’re in for a beautiful spring!!!

2 :: Camera Tech Nerd News – My latest obsession is the new Sony mirrorless full frame camera the Sony A7R. I want it SOOOOO bad. This camera is packed full of shock and awe: 36.4 MP Full Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor, no optical low pass filter, multi-interface shoe, built in wifi and NFC.The .jpg image from this camera have been said to produce better detail and sharper quality than the Cannon 5D Mark III. My most exciting discovery is that Meta Bones makes an adapter for Cannon EF to Sony E  as well as Nikon G (& F) to Sony E that can be used on the mirrorless full frame A7R. This basically means that the lens options for this camera are infinite! Also did I mention I can still use my NEX 7 lenses with the APSC crop mode? EEEE!! I hope to be able to upgrade by the end of the year. To read the full review on the awesomeness of the A7R check out Gordon Laing’s full verict on Such amazing innovation… I can hardly wait!

5 :: Crazy Kinds of Active – Dana and I went hiking this weekend due to the crazy beautiful weather we’ve been having lately. I was in a T-shirt for heaven’s sake and it’s only March 10th! This was by far the biggest hiking adventure we’d been on in our area…. we didn’t get lost exactly as we were high on a hill and could see  where we were in reference to home. It was more like we ran out of “path” and had to forge our own… which meant climbing through {me} and hopping over {D} barbed wire fences. I think we hiked for three hours yesterday and it felt AWESOME! I also cannot get over how the trees are already budding here and flowers are in full bloom! I leave you with some sunny photos to start your week off happy.

Happy Monday Ya’ll!!! It’s my hope that MIAM brightens the beginning of your week so you can power through to the end!
