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.

Helping Daddy - Day 213

“Learn to like your work. Learn to say ‘This is my work, my glory, not my doom’”
(Stepping Stones to an Abundant Life, comp. Llewelyn R. McKay [1971], 115–16).

Coming together is a beginning.  Keeping together is progress.  Working together is success. 

Pray as though everything depended on God. 
Work as though everything depended on you. 

"Fewer and fewer parents ask their children to do chores around the house because they think they are already overwhelmed by social and academic pressures. But children devoid of responsibilities risk never learning that every individual can be of service and that life has meaning beyond their own happiness." 
H. David Burton
