Chalk drawings ... SOOC

Before I get to this week's Shoot & Edit challenge, I have to tell a short story.  I stopped in at Sam's Club today to pick up some photos that Keira asked me to print.  She wants to take them to school to show off to her teachers/friends.  :)  While there the lady asks me if I took the photos because they were really good, "professional quality".  She then proceeds to make me fill out and sign a release form stating that fact.  That absolutely made my day!  So my thanks go out to Jill and Ashley for the time they take to teach us!  I guess it is paying off!




This week's Shoot & Edit/Good to WOW theme is chalk drawings.  This concerned me a little because we have a gravel driveway and a brick sidewalk ... not good places for drawing with chalk.  So, we went to our church to play yesterday afternoon, and Keira was gracious enough to do some chalk drawings for me.   Here are my SOOC shots ...

If you'd like to play along, head over to Jill's and read the guidelines.  And while you are there, check out everyone else's fabulous chalk drawing photos!

See you back here on Thursday with my edits, although I'm pretty pleased with these, so I don't expect I'll do much.  :)
