Week 9 good to WOW SOOC Spring


Welcome  back everyone!  Thanks again for joining us.  To those of you who are new to our weekly challenge please go here to learn all the details about how this works first.  The next five weeks of themes/prompts are at the bottom of my blog.  Also, everyone please do us a favor and read this post before entering any photo challenge…thanks!

This week’s theme/prompt is spring – which was not the easiest I’m sure for most of us with how cold it has been.   I was forced to think outside of the box. 

I know it is only March, however, bear with me for a second – April showers bring May flowers.  Spring around here is filled with many rainy days and yesterday was no exception. FYI – spring is only 13 days away now.  So, I decided to make the most of a rainy day and have the children put on their rain boots and jackets for a photo outside Open-mouthed smile  We were at the parking lot outside my husbands office, please excuse the ugly scenery behind them.  Thanks! I shot all of these with my 50mm 1.4.


Poor Noah was very distraught by this point – he had to go potty {pee pee} really bad and having rain falling on him wasn’t helping matters.  As you can see Naomi wasn’t too concerned at all.


Naomi and Joshua decided it would be a good idea to tell him everything would be OK, “just smile for Mommy and you can go inside.”   Please don’t be upset with me – he has to go potty all of the time and we are trying to help him hold it longer than 10 minutes or we are never making it to VA when we move next month.   I only had him wait 2-3 minutes before we all went inside. 


“See Noah, you will be OK!”


As you can see he is really done in this shot, so we ran inside to help the poor guy out!  He was all ready to go right back outside in the rain again – too bad I was done getting wet.  Unlike them I don’t have a cute rain jacket and boots!  Winking smile


I have yet to use my flash outside to boost daytime shots – however, I will be trying the tips in this video once the weather finally cooperates.

I have learned a lot watching this series of tutorials – his photography is amazing!

You have until Wednesday each week to link your SOOC shot up here. On Thursday we link up with Ashley after we follow her tips on how to edit our shots.  

For those of you like me who like to stay ahead – Week 10 March 14: Yellow. Remember you can see the next five themes/prompts at the bottom of my blog.  Or I would be happy to email you our 2011
calendar of photo prompts/themes in a PDF file.  Email me and I’ll send it to you Smile

  1. With all the rain we had yesterday I was thinking the same thing - what would spring be without the rain?
