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.

First Shoots! - Day 205

I know it doesn't look like much, but it is green, it is in my yard, and someday it will be a flower!!

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"


  1. Those are the best kinds of surprises. When it seems like winter will last forever, and then, suddenly, there are green things popping out of the earth, and our spirits are lifted.

  2. It is so fun to see green in the spring!

  3. I know how it feels to see some green :) I am so over winter lol
