Turn the Hose On! ... SOOC

This week's theme for Shoot & Edit/Good to WOW is "Turn the Hose On!"  We had to actually make a point of playing in the hose because due to our lack of rain, we're conserving water as best we can.  Since we have a well, we need water for bathing and washing clothes/dishes more than we need to be playing in it.  So the kids were thrilled when I allowed them to play with the hose so I could snap a few photos!  Even if only for a few minutes.  :)

Here are this week's SOOC shots ...
ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/125s, 18-105mm lens

Keira was perfectly content being the one in charge of the hose while Alex, Nick, and Honey ran around and got wet.  :)

The water was coooooooooooold!!!  But they had a blast anyway.

ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/160s, 18-105mm lens
Of course I had to get at least one flower shot in.  :)

Head over to Jill's to see other great SOOC shots.  
See you back here on Thursday with my edits.
Have a blessed week!

Ashley Sisk said...

You've caught some great shots - love the bokeh in the first shot, the expression in the third and the flowers in the last!

Branson said...

I loooove that last shot so much! All of them are great, though!

Allison Hoffman said...

love the expressions!!

Michelle said...

love the fun and smiles in these!! so glad they got to play, if only for a few moments!

and that last shot w/ the flowers! wonderful!! love how the water is spashing a bit, but mostly all bokeh-ed, and how while it's an important element, it's not the main subject!

Love all of these...I agree with Ashley about the bokeh in the first one, very cool.


Cedar said...
