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.

Arizona Sky

“Clouds come floating into my life, 
no longer to carry rain or usher storm, 
but to add color to my sunset sky.”

A Rainbow in the Evening

“God puts rainbows in the clouds 

so that each of us- 

in the dreariest 

and most dreaded moments- 

can see a possibility of hope.”

~Maya Angelou~

Family Party

 “[Kids] don't remember what you try to teach them. 
They remember what you are.”
~Jim Henson~

 “A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.”
~Leo Tolstoy~

Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.

She laughs with a harves".

What's in my Garden?

"Vegetables are a must on a diet. 
I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie".
