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.

Orange Crush - Day 329

For the life of me, I don't know what these sweet little flowers are.  They grow wild all over the floor of the woods in which we live.  I love them.  They are small, bright and beautiful.

Beauty seen is never lost, God's colors all are fast.
John Greenleaf Whittier

Colors are the smiles of nature. 
Leigh Hunt 

How does a pansy, for example, select the ingredients from soil to get the right colors for the flower? Now there's a great miracle. I think there's a supreme power behind all of this. I see it in nature.
Clyde Tombaugh
