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.

The Hawks

Driving down the freeway in Missouri, these were everywhere.  They were quite shy though and when we would stop to take pictures, they would fly off before I could even get the window down on the car.    I wish I could have gotten a picture that accurately depicted the beauty that was theirs.  

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
Rabindranath Tagore
