Daily Inspiration #364 by Patrick Touma
I discovered your blog last year, when I was planning on buying a Sony NEX-5n and stumbled on upon your review on it. I was not keen on DSLRs because of their weight and their size, so mirrorless cameras were my deal. So, I bought the NEX and shot about 8000 frames with it until now – and I absolutely love it. Now I visit your blog almost on a daily basis and I’m always fascinated by the great images your readers post to you.
About myself: I’m a 17-year-old German pupil who got into photography with an old OM-1 my grandfather gave me. The 5n was actually my first own camera, I played quite a bit with a Olympus compact film camera, but I neither ever had a digital compact, nor the money to get a DSLR or mirrorless camera.
But in January I finally got my 5n, the 18-55 kit zoom and an old Minolta MD 50 1.4 (thanks again to my grandfather!). 3 months later I bought the fantastic (at least in my opinion, never had a Leica lens ) Sony 50mm 1.8 OSS for the NEX, which all of the shown photos were shot with.
Long story short: I was in London, UK last week and got some nice shots I wanted to show to you. I really want to thank you for your great blog and the motivation you gave me to go out there and shoot photos. Mad props to you!
Thanks for reading, greetings from Germany!
