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.

Do you wanna dance? - Day 221

I saw this as I was driving to a friend's house and fell in love.  I really wish it was in my own front yard.  I thought it was beautiful, and reminds me of dancing through the forrest. 

“The journey between who you once were,
and who you are now becoming,
is where the dance of life really takes place.”

- Barbara De Angelis  


  1. Very interesting. Is it a burnt tree? What is it ? I LOVE the quote.

  2. Thank you. I don't know the story behind it. We had a very bad forest fire here several years ago, so it could be a burnt tree, or just a dying one. I saw it as I was driving the back roads on the outskirts of town. It struck me how much it looked like dancing and I loved it.

  3. It almost looks like this could be entitled "The Dance".

  4. How in the world do you have things growing in snow!?
