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.

Time Marches on - Ten years ago - Day 330

The Rodeo-Chediski fire burned much of my mountain home 10 years ago.  It was the biggest fire ever in the state until this year.  We were traveling the back roads and came to this burned out area from ten years ago.  You can see the devastation of the forest, but you can also see hope for the future rising up from the ashes.  I am constantly amazed at the power of time.  This area has a beauty all it's own. 

Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men.
Martha Graham

A spark neglected makes a mighty fire.  ~Robert Herrick
