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.

Chicken Run - Day 257

We have twenty chickens.  My husband needed a way for them to eat the long grass in the yard.  So, he built them a chicken run.  It is on wheels and can move from one part of the yard to another.  He puts them where the grass can use a little work!  ;-)  Don't worry, they love it and we only let them stay in it for a couple of hours before putting them back in the big chicken coop.  They have water and a nesting box to lay their eggs.  

"My father asserted that there was no better place to bring up a family than in a rural environment....There's something about getting up at 5a.m., feeding the stock and chickens, and milking a couple of cows before breakfast that gives you a lifelong respect for the price of butter and eggs."  William E Vaughan
