Good to WOW Week 12 - Green

I told myself I was NOT going to do grass! Nope, not gonna do it.

I did it.

To my credit, I accidentally clicked on the wrong blog this morning and went to Ashley’s first.  I read that she was going to show us how to make our grass true green.  Then suddenly I wanted to shoot grass because I wanted to really be able to see that.  Summer is coming up and the percentage of my pictures that have grass in them are going to skyrocket. 

So I ran out and I took this:

Towzer was mostly cooperative even though he really let me know he only laid down on the wet grass because he was a good dog (those eyes asked me like five times “really, Mama?” before he did it).  I on the other hand failed to realize there was on of the kids’ buckets in view so I had to kind of cram him in one corner in order to avoid it.  It REALLY didn’t add anything to the picture but I didn’t want Towz to take the opportunity to leave while I moved it so I just shot the picture.  So let’s just say I did that on purpose, artsy, right?  Right.

On the other hand, I took this one at the bus stop on Friday:

I’d really like to see what can be done with this photo as well.  It’s the shadow of a tree on a curved hedge in case you hadn’t quite gotten there yet.

Click on the button below to participate, it really is a lot of fun!  And even if you don’t want to participate, go there and check out the entries and then comment on them to let the photographer know how much you oohed and awed over them.  :)

The tree shadow is pretty cool. It is amazing how much more I'm noticing just because I want to find a cool shot.

Fun! I can't wait to learn about the green too. :)

I really love both shots - your grass is actually very green and the shadow is so cool The high pass filter will bring it out even more!

That grass looks so green already - great to get the dog involved too.

Great shots! I saw the dog and I had to visit your SOOC. I'm a sucker for animal shots. ;)
