It's not raining!

Last Thursday I had the day off and took the kids to the park.  The oldest and middle decided they would play with the drinking fountain.  It was really really hot out so I let them for about 5 minutes.  This is a shot of the middle one absolutely enjoying it!

I Clicked it Up a Notch Photography Contest – July

I actually had several favorite photos from July so this was pretty difficult.  This one really stands out for me as a favorite.  It is a little different as I normally take portrait type photos.  I just love how it really shows her curious little personality :)

As a side note the shadow of the flowers is from the sun reflecting off the window of a house behind my parents house.  I just love the image it created.





Collage, Storyboard and Blogboard for Lightroom



Here are some examples of Lightroom collages, storyboards, blogboards I have put together.  I either made my own, modified the preset LR3 came with or found sometime free online.  (I found some here)  (Here is one I made)







I Clicked it up a Notch - Quarterly Top 5

It was really hard to just pick 5 photos from the last quarter and I think I did not even make it out of April :)
