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.

Bison Ranch - Day 80

These stores are active here.  The summers are very busy, but the winters can be a little slow.  I love the old frontier look to the storefronts.  We don't have many stores in town, so the ones we have, are well used.  Whenever I go here, I am reminded of a frontier town with the wooded sidewalks and the old-fashioned, welcoming atmosphere. Perhaps, that is what I love about my small town the most.


  1. Patty Ann,
    What a great challenge of taking a new picture each day for an entire year! Good for you! I am newly into blogging and while I love to take pictures, they are usually of family so I'm attempting to spread my wings as well.
    I look forward to seeing the remainder of your days...

  2. I love the look of those storefronts! Black & white enhances that vintage look! Have fun with your project!

  3. I love small towns! These are very nice storefronts. :)

  4. it looks like something out of the wild west, love them in black and white.

  5. I love these types of buildings and storefronts too! I love quaint little downtown areas with so much character and history! Great captures!
