An evening at the park!

Two weeks ago, we had amazing weather. You would have never known it was summer. It was in the upper 70's and lower 80's and hardly any humidity. It was a little "Fall-Teaser," especially since it's back into the upper 90's now.

One evening that week, Jake was out with some friends and the weather was just too nice not to be outside enjoying it, so I put Jackson in the wagon and we headed up the street to the park! I took my camera along to get some fun shots for Sara's "Sunshine" themed August Photo Challenge (keeping this tutorial in mind)! The pretty sunshine that evening did not disappoint. It was actually really hard to choose my favorite!

Ultimately, I decided on this one for the challenge because of all the dreamy light coming in. :-)
(Canon EOS Rebel T2i with 50mm 1.8 lens - Settings: f/2.8, 1/800 sec., ISO 320) (I did some post processing with picmonkey.com and a few photoshop elements actions.)

Here are a few of the other pictures I took that evening.

Love love love!!! You got some really incredible shots! And every time I see your photos I'm so in awe of Jackson's big blue eyes. He is going to be a lady killer! How do you ever possibly say no to that kid? :)
