About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 151 - May 31, 2011

Cardinal - hen
I finally got a close up picture of a bird.  Yeah me!!!  Isn't she pretty?

Once again, I can thank Melvin for letting me play with his Nikon D5000.


  1. Neat...you got a female cardinal. How nice of Melvin to share his camera. :)

  2. YAY! She is pretty. Way to go.

  3. If Melvin is not using his camera, tell him to let you use it or it might just collect some dust...it will not be good! LOL...ah, nice one...i've had no luck with cardinals. I've tried but I failed miserably...:)
