If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Fruit of our labors - day 26

A Labor of Love - day 26
I am entering a new art challenge over at In the moment.  The challenge word for this month is "Labor".
Today was the day of the peaches at our house.  

Four boxes of peaches, equals row upon row of sweet fruit

Translating into a labor of love for our family.  
In the cold of winter we can yet enjoy the fruit of another season.  


  1. they look so good! wish I had some, a great labour!

  2. Bottled sunshine! How lovely. :)

  3. Love the color and the angle of it. And I LOVE peaches! Love your take on the challenge. Glass jars are always fun to paint :)

  4. Definitely a labor of love, and these look so good!!

  5. That looks like a lotta work right there! But yummy!

  6. Yum!! I can't remember the last time I had a good peach, but this post sure made me want to go out and get some before the season is over!

  7. Thank you so much! We did 68 jars of peaches and 34 jars of pears. I am exhausted!

  8. Those look yummy - you'll enjoy them all year long. We did lots of applesauce this year - but we froze it all instead of canning it (a bit less work!). I'm going to try to paint this for the In The Moment Art challenge - and if I do, I'll post another comment. Thanks for sharing the images.

  9. I've painted one of your jars of peaches, which you can see here if you'd like:
