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.

This Rock - 331

Bloom Where you are planted!

“I am come that they might have
life, and that they might have it
more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

“The abundant life does not come to us packaged and ready-made. It’s not something
we can order and expect to find delivered with the afternoon mail. It does not come
without hardship or sorrow. It comes through faith, hope, and charity. And it comes to
those, who, in spite of hardship and sorrow, understand the words of one writer who
said, “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.*”— Joseph B. Wirthlin, "The Abundant Life," Ensign, May 2006, 99-102
