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.

Friends are like the pillars on your front porch.
Sometimes they hold you up,
Sometimes they lean on you,
And sometimes, it's enough to know
That they are just standing by.


  1. This reminds me of a sign I have in my guest room - Friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they're always there.
