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.

Her name in lights! - Day 108

My daughter's name is Mikayla Joy.  She loves her name and is very proud of it.  We drove to the valley and to my son's home where we saw this as we got out of the car.  Mikayla was so excited!!  I have a feeling we are going to be spreading a little "Joy" of our own with a few lights.  I never knew a child could get so excited just by seeing thier name in lights!


  1. That is really cute!

  2. Awww, bless her heart! I think it is the 'joy' of seeing her name in lights, but also the divine love she feels inside by her given name.
    It sounds like she has the perfect name...

    Thank you Patty Ann for the continual visits to my blog and your positive comments. It means a great deal to me and I just wanted to let you know!

  3. Thank you both for your comments. She is quite an amazing young woman and she does love her name! Sometimes, we manage to do the right thing in spite of ourselves.

  4. What a sweet story and a beautiful name, she should be proud!
