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.

Old Post Office

A recent trip to Globe Arizona gave me an opportunity to take several pictures of the old Post Office there.  I loved the detail in the building.  This was the better picture of all of them.  I didn't like the ones that were farther away because you could not see the amazing detail.  Globe is an old mining town and parts of it are very run down.  The Post Office used to house several different federal agencies and is amazing.

  1. That's how a post office is supposed to look like - brick and neoclassic architecture - not like a fast food drive through.
