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.

Pretty in Pink - Day 230

My sweet daughter, Anya, in her beautiful Easter Dress.  I won the skirt last month in a drawing on Just Be.
I hope you check her blog out.  I love her skirts and her handbags.  I was so excited when I won this, but waited to show Anya until this week.  It was a wonderful surprise for her.
