Yes, adorable.

I like the composition with the ray of light.

I just saw an interview with Lee Friedlander, my photographic hero, and he exhorts the students in the audience to always have a camera with them, and he meant on them. To prove it, he pulled a little camera out of his coat pocket. That's what I use the RX100iii for. And I got this, very lucky, picture.

Nowadays a smartphone might be a sufficient little camera. Especially if only shown on the web.
I wonder how many people realize that each and every photo I show on google plus (not talking about links to my blogs) has been taken with a phone.

At a lecture about the history of photography at uni some years ago the lecturer asked the audience who was having a camera with them. A phone with a camera. Almost everyone raised his/her hand.

And: sometimes I think the RX100iii is rendering the photos too sharp - i.e. see the post about the lock/one hour walk/March 27 on scrap press. Esp. #3,4 and 5

You must be using jpegs, not raw. The Sony jpegs on the RX100iii, the Rx10 and the a6000 are all over sharpened , by my view. You can either work from RAW or try to back off sharpness in Photoshop. I prefer the RAW path as it is more natural. I have not bonded with my phone camera and i do almost always have a camera with me.

I rarely shoot RAW - too much of a workflow to do and with me showing 99% of my photos in web compression not really necessary. I rarely even process my photos besides the resizing. I.e. I am lazy, grin. No, it's just I don't have that much time and that much interest in doing much of post-editing. :-)

Perhaps when I am retired ... .... ;-)
