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.

Anya - Day 141

My girls love the winter, as long as it means snow, and a snow day from school!!

The hill was so big, that some of the kids had to crawl up instead of climb up.  

But coming down was worth every bit of the effort!!

There is nothing quite like the wind in your hair as you whoosh down the hill.  

I haven't seen this many smiles for  a long time.  We really need to take a break like this more often.  


  1. Looks like lots of fun was had - you got some great shots!

  2. Great shots - your daughter looks beautiful and so happy!

  3. My goodness she is beautiful! Lovely portraits of such a beautiful young lady!

  4. Thank you so much! I do tend to think she is beautiful, but I could be slightly biased! What I love about pictures on days like this is that nothing is posed, and they always look so happy!!

  5. Oh my gosh... she is a BEAUTY! Great photos, Patty!
