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 43, Day 301, February 22, 2010, A Chip off the Old Block.
After having great new subjects to photograph yesterday, today I was limited to my house once again. Because I see my house everyday, I don't notice a lot of things. But, because of yesterday's subject I did think about the beam that we have exposed in our upstairs renovation. This beam was cut by hand, and at one time supported the roof of the house. The roof line has been changed. This notch is where the rafters once rested. We liked the looks of the rough cut log, so we left it exposed after we found it in our wall. I cannot imagine the amount of work that it took to build a post and beam house by hand.
Sometimes subjects from one place will lead the inspirations in other places.
Photo details: Exposure time 2 sec, Aperture f/5.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 20 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, tripod.
