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.

Wood Stack in the Pines - Day 238

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to DO is increased.”

Noah heeded God's command to build an ark...that they might be saved from
the floodwaters. Yet there was no evidence of rain and flood. His actions
were considered irrational. The sun was shining and life moved forward as usual. But time ran out, the floods came, the disobedient were drowned. When God speaks and we obey, we will always be right.”
- Thomas S. Monson (October 2002 Ensign)


  1. Those are some great quotes! Thanks for sharing them! :)

    I agree... I went for a run today which I went on about a month ago. I did it in just a little less time, but it was so much easier! It made me happy to realize that I am improving. :D
