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.

The Morning Fire - Day 58

A Cheery Fire in the Morning Hours 

Probably, one of my favorite parts of having the mornings get colder, is the wood fire burning in the wood stove.  We heat our house mostly with wood every winter.  It cuts down on fuel costs and keeps us warm.  We love the way it looks and the feelings of comfort that it elicits.


  1. there is nothing like a cozy fire in winter. So glad you are thinking about black and white,look forward to seeing your images.

  2. I wish I had a fire place when it gets cold, they are almost mesmerizing. I love the contrast you captured in the fire! Great shot!
