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.

The LZ - Day 23
Today, I had EMS training. Just in case you don't know what that is, it is Emergency Medical Service. I am an EMT up here in my mountain home. The training today was LZ or Landing Zone training which means we got to set things up to land a helicopter. We are 45 minutes away from the nearest hospital and it is not a level one trauma center. So, if the injury or illness is more severe than our local hospital can handle, we have to fly them out. Today, we learned the safe way to land a helicopter and set up the LZ to ensure there are no mishaps.
