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 Pony Express - Day

I happened to be going through Payson when the Hashknife Pony Express came riding into town.  I was able to take several pictures and throughly enjoyed myself for the event.  There is nothing quite like it.  It is a little like watching a piece of history.  I thought I would include some of my favorite Cowboy Quotes with this one. 

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear,
or a fool from any direction.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
