The Guardian....

One of my favorite things to do with our family is go on family walks, and today was a great day for one. With the cold front coming in, South Carolina felt a little like the Midwest where we grew up on a wonderful autumn day with that crispness in the air, and a great excuse to take out my new 50mm lens that I got from my sweet husband for Christmas.  I really like how honest the photos are, it also challenges me to move more.  How fun for the kids to discover some gravel piles to climb on made my husband and I reminisce our childhood in the chat piles of southwest Missouri left over from the mining days.

I snapped this photo as I watched Truman, our chocolate lab, watch over our kids.  The interesting part of this picture is that we had taken the leash off, but he still stayed at a distance as if he was content to have a better view in order to keep watch.

I mentioned last photo post that I usually do SOOC, but I have been playing around with PicMonkey lately and added the Yester Color effect.  I like how it added a nice golden hue to my picture, however to be honest I really like the SOOC one as well.  Which do you prefer?
