Sunday Snapshot: {106 and a redo}

The heat must be melting my brain. I totally missed that July is here and we have a new Sunday Snapshot Sponsor! So, I’m reposting this with the corrected information below. All entries for this week’s Sunday Snapshot will be considered for July’s goodies from My 4 Hens Photography!

It was hot today.


So photo opps were at a minimum.

Unless I wanted to stand on the other side of the sprinkler.

Sometimes a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do.

These were taken with my Nikon D90 and a 50mm 1.4 lens. Settings were ISO 160, f/2.8, 1/1250. Edited lightly in Lightroom and then in CS6.

If you’re ready to play along, here’s a quick overview of Sunday Snapshot.

1. Snapshot posts should have the photo to be considered AT THE TOP of the Sunday Snapshot post, and should include the Sunday Snapshot button as well as a link back here to encourage others to play along.
2. Share any photography tips and/or settings on your posts for others (like me!) who are learning – this is encouraged but certainly not required.
3. I’ll review each Snapshot entry and then select a favorite to be announced on Wednesday.
4. The winning Snapshot will be selected based on composition, color, emotion, creativity and post-processing.
5. Weekly winners will be featured in a monthly Sunday Snapshot post which will be judged by y’all, the readers.
6. The winner of the monthly Sunday Snapshot will receive a photography related goodie donated by the Sunday Snapshot monthly sponsor. July’s Sunday Snapshot sponsor is My 4 Hens Photography.
7. Rules subject to change, as necessary, to keep this fun and fruitful for everyone.
