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.

Cactus Blooms?? - Day 178
Goodness, it was only February, still snowy were I come from and I saw these microscopic blooms and just had to try and get a picture of them!
Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity. ~John Ruskin
The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size. ~Gertrude S. Wister
"God writes the Gospel, not in the Bible alone,
but also on the trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars."
