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.

Trekkies - Day 269

Once every four years, our stake (this is a group of churches)  puts on a big event.  It is called a Pioneer Trek.  My daughter was fourteen this year and is old enough to go.  This is an amazing opportunity for the kids.  It is hard!  So hard!  But they learn so many things.  I think one of the most important things is that they can do hard things!  They push these handcarts for three days.  They eat the same foods the pioneers ate, the dress like the pioneers, and they even get to play a little too.  This sweet daughter is my own little trekkie!


  1. what a fantastic thing to do, hope she enjoys it, she looks so sweet!

  2. I love the first shot! How fun!
