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.

Catpaws - Day 138

My parents love Folk Music.  They play many different instruments, but I am attracted to the ones that are very different.  These are some of my favorite ones to dust off and play.  They are called Catpaws and you use them very much like spoons (when they are played as instruments and not as eating utensils!).


  1. you are so going to make fun of me. Without reading the blog when the photos came up I thought they were salad spoons :) Really cool ones but still LOL!

    These are just so cool, thank you for sharing this!

  2. PattyAnn, those are really neat! I'd like to hear their sound. You know, one of my favorite instruments is the dulcimer...how my, what a lovely sound. Thanks for bringing the memory to the forefront of my mind! I hope you are doing okay!
