Good to WOW SOOC --Spring

Hey, y'all! This week, I am participating in a photo shoot post with Jill and Ashely. If you notice, the title includes the letters, SOOC. That stands for straight out of camera. Normally, I edit  ALL of my pics before anyone sees them!!! This is sort of like doing your errands after running, and you are praying that you don't run into anyone that you know! Of course, that NEVER happens! My friends have seen me in icky running clothes at the grocery store or Target with a hat on to cover my wet head more times than I care to count! That's how I look in real life--straight out of camera! No clean clothes and no make-up translates to no editing! 

This week we will practice editing out shots. That way you can see the "before" and  "after" of our edits. We had to find a photo for spring today. So, I meandered outside and found quite a few beautiful signs of this lovely season. I am only sharing one picture with you all today. We have this prettty flowing deciduous bush in the backyard. Each year, it produces tiny white flowers that look like little roses. I have no idea what it is! Anybody out there recognize it? I'd love to know.

I was snapping away and looked in the LCD panel and realized that the branches were in the shape of a cross!!! I just loved that! Lent begins on Wednesday, and I am ready for the countdown to Easter. :)

Here is my entry for the spring photo this week. Come back on Thursday, and I will show you what I did to edit it!

Sweet Blessings,

You are so precious!!!!

Love your SOOC shot and that it reminds us all of the price He paid for us - then made us white as snow - sins FORGIVEN!

Hugs and love - bet you are just as pretty unedited wet head and all!

thanks for stopping by my blog. You asked what kind of lens I used to capture that ant. It was 52mm 0.45x wide angle & macro used on the 18-55mm.
btw, your Spring shot is gorgeous!
have a great day!

What a beautiful picture! I love how you can see all the buds, and just a few flowers beginning to unfold. I can't wait to see what you're going to do with it!

I love this shot. The cross and spring--such a beautiful illustration of hope and life. What edit can it possibly need?

Beautiful SOOC!!!!! Can't wait to see the edit!

What an beautiful picture. I'm jealous you have flowers already. Our trees are still bare although I saw my first crocus yesterday.

Can't wait to see what you do to the pic!

Miss you!

I took a photo once while running- with my phone- and the sun's rays had made a perfect cross behind the rock I was shooting. I loved that. I've been practicing editing my pics for my online shop, and I just this week learned how to make a slideshow for my blog. I am so psyched to keep learning more!
