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.

The Windmill - Day 126

You might not know that this is actually in the middle of the city.   We drove by and I walked across the busy road to take this shot.  I loved the independence and majesty of it.


  1. How cool... is it historically significant that it is still standing?

  2. It looks like there is a plaque of some kind before it. What does it say? Did an old farm once stand on this spot?

  3. Wow, that's in the middle of a city? pretty cool...it seems that there should be nothing but fields and woods nearby.
    thanks for sharing a lovely sight...

  4. Nice!!

    Looks like you may need to clean your lens or sensor? :)
