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.

May 3, 2010, The Tenacity of Life
I noticed this maple tree growing in the hollow part of a stump that was cut just a few years ago. I am amazed at the tenacity of life.
I like the contrast of the green with the dead wood, and the dark cavern around the tree.
I need a circular polarizer filter for my 50 mm lens.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/100 sec, Aperture f/5.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.
