# 14 - Our current two-year RV trip across North America. This week, "Saturday morning in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana". I used the Pentax K-3 equipped with the smc PENTAX DA Star 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM.


Hi Photographer friends,

Saturday morning in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

The Pentax K-3 is probably the best APS-C cropped sensor DSLR on thew market. 

I have been using Pentax camera and lenses since I was in Junior High.

The  smc PENTAX DA Star 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM
is one of my favorite lens, It has a large aperture and the bokeh is good for portraits.

This week, we were in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. We stayed at the Cajun Palms RV Rersort.   What a blast. These folks party all of the time.  The Park was full, and in the Cajun tradition, it was a general Party for everyone. 

Talking to the locals, we learned about a place called "Cafe Des Amis". Every Saturday morning, starting at 7:00 A.M. people gather in this small place to have breakfast, bloody mary and dance. The band played Zydeco music, non-stop, till noon. Everyone danced, including myself and my wife.

The YouTube video below is a blend of images taken with my Pentax K-3 equipped with the DA* 16-50mm. The video clips were taken with the K-3 and the iPhone 5S. The montage was done using my iPad and iMovie. All the still images were captured with the K-3.

I have a hard time crawling out of bed by 9:00 A.M. but these folks are playing Zydeco music at 7:00 A.M.

Taken with the K-3, at ISO 2000 to capture the ambiance and I added the vignetting with Adobe Lightroom.

The smc Pentax DA* 16-50 is a great portrait lens.

Here is another example of the soft bokeh of the DA 16-50.

Thank you for reading. Keep using you Pentax equipment. Pentax is gaining on the competition. I'm glad that Ricoh took Pentax under it's wings.
