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.

I Pledge Allegiance - Day 168

I pledge allegiance to the flag 
of the United States of America
And to the republic for which it stands
One Nation under God,
Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

There is nothing quite like seeing a group of preschoolers leading the adults in the Pledge Allegiance.  I am amazing, humbled and nearly speechless.  


  1. gorgeous flowers!
    lovely blog!
    happy weekend :)

  2. Truly brings back the spirit when done by those just learning. Love the facial expressions.

  3. and it is sad how many people want to take out "under God". Yes, I love it when MY children sing the National Anthem (every word!) in a crowd. I'm so glad I taught them it a long time ago. Actually, the younger ones don't know it, but I will be homeschooling 2 of my youngest girls next year and it will be on the "to do" list.

  4. I couldn't agree more! This is a wonderful shot, just wonderful!
