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.

Macro Friday - Easter Eggs - Day 160

Today I am linking up with Blogging From Bolivia for Macro Friday. Go there if you want to see some other great pictures! 
We have several "new" chickens.  (Well, 22 to be exact).  They are just starting to lay eggs for our pleasure.  Some of the chickens are "Easter Egg Chickens".  This means they really do lay colored eggs.  These eggs are actual eggs laid in our chicken coop.  As you can see, the little chicken lays a very little egg.  My husband has named the chicken, "Chicken Little".  


  1. That is so cool...I like the 2nd shot

  2. I would LOVE to see photos of your chickens - especially the ones that hatch the colored eggs. :) Love that color!

  3. Aren't they pretty. I remember Martha Stewart talking about that some years ago when she showed some of her chickens and the different coloured eggs they laid. Terrific.
