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.

Five Minutes to say Good-bye - Day 194

All taken within a five minute period of time.  I had to pull off the road to catch these fabulous shots.

Courage doesn't aways roar. 
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day,
saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
Mary Anne Radmacher

"Finish each day and be done with it. 
You have done what you could. 
Some blunders and absurdities no doube crept in,
forget them as soon as you can. 
Tomorrow is a new day, you shall begin it well and serenely"...
Ralph Waldo Emerson

One day at a time--this is enough. 
Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; 
and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. 
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful
it will be worth remembering.


  1. Lovely! the best sunsets have always been the ones when I left the camera at home. Sometimes I think God does that on purpose.

  2. Patty Ann-those are gorgeous!!! Wow, what a capture you had...
    thanks for brightening my day!

  3. Yes, sometimes I kick myself for not pulling over RIGHT away. Nice job.

  4. What a wonderfully inspiring blog post today and the photos are just stunning! I love a sunset, something so peaceful and calm about it..

  5. "I will try again tomorrow"... seems to be my montra! Fantastic sky!

  6. I have always loved both of these quotes -- and they are speaking volumes to me these days. Beautiful photos as well, I love sunsets!
