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.

Round and Round - Day 45

Here We Go Round - Day 45

My daughter loves the Merry-go-round.  I must admit, sometimes it looks like fun.  I do like to be the one taking pictures as the round and round feeling is not a good one for me.  I blurred this one except for her face, and highlighted the colors.  I like the way it turned out.


  1. That is a great pic. I hate being on things that go round and round. I get terrible motion sick. I mean bad. I even got sick at the theater watching the movie "The Perfect Storm". I had to go home and go to bed for hours.

    I have your email about photos. Sorry I'm late responding. I will today!

  2. What a fun shot! I love merry-go-rounds :-)If you could ever stand it, it might be fun to sit in the middle and try to take a photo while going round :)

  3. My kiddos love the merry-go-round too. I guess I can't blame them as I used to love it too as a child. :) Dropping by from SITS. Wishing you all the best.

    Kindest regards,
