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 Ballet - Day 195

One wonderful evening, I took the girls to a ballet.  It was about Fairy Tales.  There was a party at the beginning to give all the little princesses a chance to meet the ballerinas.

They twirled

They posed.

They talked and laughed.

During the intermission, all princesses were invited to join in a dance on the stage.

Ballet Haiku

Daringly Brilliant
Twisting, turning, leaping high
Arms outstretched in joy.

  3. What a beautiful experience. I love the haiku at the end.

  4. Thank you all so much! We loved the Ballet and it was so fun. I am trying to increase my writing abilities, so I wrote the haiku at the end. I appreciate all the comments!!
