With this blog I have begun a journey to improve my photography skills. My goal is to take photos everyday, and post my favorite photo from that day on this blog. So far, I have learned a lot, and try to share my experiences. Many of you have made comments on the blog, via email, or when you see me in person. I really appreciate all of them. I learn a lot from each of you.
I hope that you will join me in my journey, and help me along the way. I have so much to learn.

Week 42, Day 293, February 14, 2010 Take Off
I experimented with photographing birds through a window while we were at the in-laws for dinner. The experiment was to use a high ISO so that I could keep the shutter speeds as fast as possible. (Thank you for that tip RuneE). It was a dark cloudy day. I took this photo just after the sparrow jumped off the branch.
It seems like photographing small birds in flight is a hit or miss with a lot more misses.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/1000 sec, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 3200, Focal Length 200 mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, handheld.
