Snap Shot Saturday {Linky Party}

I am linking up with Run! Mrs. Nelson's Got The Camera for her Saturday Snapshots Linky Party!


Since I just returned this past week from vacation I decided to let you take a little peek of some of the pictures I captured.


Guess who I saw on my vacation???  This is one of my fellow second graders that goes to my school. Guess where I saw him at???  Out of all places a Florida rest stop area {Note:  We live in Bossier City, Louisiana}.  He and I both got a kick out of seeing each other in a totally different state.  I was on my way to the beach and he was on his way to Disney World.   I told his mom I just had to write about this picture.


This is a self portrait taken with my iPhone.  It seemed like we got stuck in every traffic jam possible on our way to the beach.  So what is one to do when traffic is at a standstill??  Play with the iPhone of course.  It is about an 8 hour drive from Bossier City, Louisiana to Destin, Florida.


This picture was taken with my really good camera.  I have a Cannon 20 D.  I bought it about 5 years ago. I saved up for about six months to buy this nice camera.  It takes really good pictures, but it can be a little bulky to carry around.  So a lot times I end up just using my iPhone to take pictures.  But for this particular picture my daughter was doing toe touches and cartwheels up and down the beach.  So I pulled out my good camera and practiced shooting in manual.  I caught her just before she went up for a toe touch.  Mrs. Nelson would have been so proud that I used manual.


This is another picture I took using manual mode on my camera.  I thought it turned out pretty good.   It was starting to get dark on the beach so the background is a little dark.   That is the only thing I wish I could change about this picture.   I should have gotten outside a little sooner.  But both of the girls are smiling.   I think it turned out cute!


If you follow me on Instagram then you have probably seen this picture already.   We found these living sand dollars while diving and playing around in the ocean.  We were so fascinated by them.  The girls really got a kick out of feeling the tentacles move on their hands.  


This was a picture I took using my iPhone.  A lot of my pictures turn out very hazy looking when I use my phone and I can't figure out why.  If you have any suggestions I would love to hear your advice on how to take better pictures using my phone.   However, I though this was a cute picture of my girls enjoying the water.


Last but not least this was taken on our last day.   This picture was also taken on my iPhone.  We were so sad to leave the beach.  It is something that my family and I look forward to all year long.  We can't wait to go again next year.

That about wraps up my Saturday snapshots.  Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek.  Remember you can follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Google, TpT, and Bloglovin'.   I would love to hear from you.

  3. Looks like you had a blast! I've been staying away from the beach side here in PCB. Traffic is nuts!
    About the haziness of your pictures on your iphone. Do you have a case on your phone? It could be reflecting off of that. That is what was happening with my pictures on just one certain case. I had to take it off when I wanted to snap pics. If it's not the case...I'm stumped.
