Hardware Upgrade: Canon EOS R5

October 27th, 2020 | No Comments | Posted in Life, NEWS, Photography, Sonny_B, Video

After 8 years, I’ve finally found the camera that I wanted to upgrade to! Of course over the years there have been better and better cameras. I’ve been watching almost each and every release.

There first camera I personally invested in for work was a Canon and I have been using Canon ever since. Over the the years other companies such as Sony  have released more compeitive cameras but I’ve remained a patient loyal Canon user.

Finally this year Canon released their latest and greatest, the Canon EOS R5. It is the exact camera I was waiting for. I ordered it this July, on release week, and it has finally arrived! 3 months later! I look forward to producing some new work with it. Stay tuned!

八年後、私はやっとアップグレードのために買いたいカメラをみつけました!キャノンのEOS R5。もちろん数年間たくさんのすごいカメラがリリースした。いつもカメラのニューズを見ている。

Eric Garner. 4 Year Death Anniversary

July 18th, 2018 | No Comments | Posted in #ProjectFBI, Music, Sonny_B

Today marks the 4th year since #EricGarner, the #NewYork man who died after a takedown by NYPD, died. His death sparked national outcry, inspired various movements and caused many to contemplate the USA’s Police system.

It also inspired me to write my song “The Clouds”, which discusses the issue of mental separation we have toward others depending on our economic or social class. It discusses what causes us to lack empathy when those unlike use suffer. But we aren’t so different. Finally, It discusses some ideas in which we can improve our lives on earth. Of course it isn’t so simple, though I wish it was.
#RestInPeace Mr. Garner, and I wish peace and happiness to your family. 🙏

今日は エリック・ガーナーさんの4年の死の記念日。彼の話のせいで、俺の曲を「The Clouds」書くようインスピレーションを受けました。
