Running From the Law: July Photo Challenge

One of my favorite bloggers and fellow St. Louisan, Sara, has a photo contest going on this week with the theme: Water. She shared a great post a couple weeks ago about getting your camera off of auto and shooting in manual mode. I've been playing around with manual this summer and have loved the results! You should definitely check out her post here.

I haven't had a chance the last couple of days to take a "contest worthy" photo of Jackson in the water, so I thought I'd use one of my favorites from earlier in the month.

You may remember this photo from an earlier post. We were at our church picnic and he absolutely loved going down the giant slip n slide!

Oh - this is great. First, I love that pic of Jackson and secondly, I think I just may have to follow her and join too!

PS: Ever since I started shooting in manual, my pictures have been SOMUCHBETTER!
