Playing with the Canon G7X MII

Sometimes you just need a play day, no serious photography, no pressure, no early or late hours.  Just good old fashioned snapshots with a little creative interpretation thrown in.  I had been looking for a great point and shoot I could throw in my purse and just have when easily available when I wanted to capture the moment.  I finally found it with the Canon G7X MII, and stumbled on a photography playground with their creative modes.

Peter and I recently spent the day at the Getty Center in Los Angeles.  There are so many visually interesting things to see besides the art and the manuscripts.  I spent well over an hour in the gardens (and it was 90+ degrees) playing with the creative modes on the G7X MII.  My favorite treatments were:  Toy Camera, Miniature, and Art Bold Effect.  Sometimes just letting go can be what’s needed.
