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.

Oh Mom!!!

You have no idea how many pictures I had to take before I could get to the last one (which is one of my favorites!)  She has a sixth sense for when mom is taking pictures, and she hates to have them taken of her!

“Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible — the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.”
- Virginia Satir

  1. That "don't take my picture" seems to be common to a lot of the teen-aged children. It's a shame because they are so beautiful. Just as your daughter is.

  2. Love the photo of her reading. Great light.
