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 Moon - Day 197

The moon shines brightly
And bathes the world with soft light
bringing quiet peace.


  1. Patty Ann, I loved the moon as well and such a great photo! Hey, I looked below and saw your daughter's band concert. It looks like she enjoys it as much as Nicholas :) I'm glad they are involved kids!

  2. I went out and took shots of the full moon last night - it was so bright!

  3. Beautiful words and photo. I missed the super moon because I was at a concert but it was still so bright when I got out of the venue so I can't even imagine how cool it looked!

  4. You got it! I can never make moonshots work on my camera.

  5. No details...you needed to use some different settings.

    In your welcome note at the top, did you mean Nikon D200?

  6. That moon...! It was something. I alwasy enjoy the concerts and spring performances. Although when my daughter played violin, it was a bit painful. Let's just say she found her "nitch" with the visual arts!
