Photo Hunters~ Water

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Surprisingly, I didn't have to look far for a fun subject for this week's theme. On Father's Day, we took a little trip to a lovely garden to see the beautiful flowers.



Near the entrance we found this lovely fountain. I snapped one photo before I heard Sugar Bear say, "I have to go potty, Mama!" I had to laugh at the universal reaction to the sound of WATER splashing.




After a quick potty break, we made out way back to the fountain for more photos. Sugar spent most of her time trying to touch the water, while I split my time between composing some shots, and keeping Sugar from falling in.



My MOM duties kept me from getting a full fountain shot, as I refused to get that far from Sugar Bear, and she was pretty adamant about checking out the WATER.



Most of these photos have some technical difficulties, and I acknowledge them, but I am learning to accept such things when I am shooting at the same time a toddler is in my care. I simply cannot always take my time to re-adjust settings when the Sugar is running about. Safety FIRST!



It was a beautifully sunny day, and the garden was delightful. The sound of the fountain certainly completed the picture.



I do hope to make it back someday when I don't have a busy toddler and an impatient Hubby, so that I can do this fountain the justice it deserves.



In the mean time.....I'll just enjoy the memories of Sugar's delight!



Have a great weekend! I look forward to seeing all the WATER. I'll just be sure to take a potty break before I start looking. :)

Even though with Sugar eager to explore the water which you've gotta be real careful together with an impatient hubby. Those pictures are great :)

Have a good weekend Corey :)

jmb said...

Lovely shots Corey, I don't know why you are worrying about that. Have a great weekend.

ellen b said...

So lovely. All the photos are great.

Sue said...

Sugar is such a cutie! Great pics for the theme :) Happy photo hunting, and thanks for stopping by :)

mama meji said...

I agree about not letting the guards down when toddlers are around bodies of water or water sources -artificial or not. Great shots despite the mmm distraction.

Carver said...

Great shots and your Sugar is such a photogenic child. She adds to the beauty of the fountain.

Sarge Charlie said...

Trinity said...

A lovely fountain and Sugar is so captivated by the water. :)

crazy working mom said...

I love your work! These are great shots. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Hunting!

Barbara H. said...

Those are just beautiful! Great composition. It's funny how kids are intrigued by water -- my middle one especially loved it wherever he could find it.

Christina said...

I love the droplets frozen in midair! Nice stop-action. I have come to the same conclusion about taking photos with the kiddo in tow - I just can't focus enough to really give it my best, and she has to come first! But still, these are great.

Leslie said...

Your water photos are fabulous! Thanks for coming by mine - and in the recent readers over in your sidebar - I'm Pyewacket - well, my siamese is actually. :)

ispeakbeanish said...

I love the fourth one. You always do a great job. It sounds like Sugar likes water as much as The Bean.

Randi said...

These are gorgeous pictures - as always!
Suger is such a cutie!
Happy Weekend!

TiOheM said...

I love the pictures of fountain.

leslie said...

Gosh, if these shots have some problems, then who cares? They are stunning! I actually prefer the shots of the parts rather than the whole. Makes it more intriguing. Come on over to see my take on the theme this week - not nearly as good as yours, but still....you might enjoy it. :D Have a great weekend.

Snap Catch said...

great catch for this week theme, thanks for dropping by.

Huey said...

Those are really beautiful photos! Even though I don't have a toddler with me I don't think I can take such nice photos. @.@

jams o donnell said...

What a wonderful set of photos for the theme. Your daughter is such a cutie! Have a great weekend

PastorMac's Ann said...

Wow these are lovely. Breathtaking. You are so skilled and have such an eye for photography! Wonderful set for our theme.

Jenty said...

Oh wow! The second last one is amazing. And yes, chasing after a child and taking photos are not good mates :)
Are these taken with your new lens? I think I like your lens more than mine :)

kaycee said...

again another beautiful series of photos... stunning.

archiearchive said...

There may be technical problems but for sheer beauty, they are great.

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi Corey. You always take beautiful pictures. I could just imagine how fun it was taking photos on a lovely day with Sugar. She makes your pictures come alive.

Steven and Aisha said...

You have really great shots! :) I enjoyed looking at them!

June said...

A lot of good shots here! Nicely done...

JC said...

Terrific shots... I didn't notice any technical difficulties since Sugar is in them :-)

AnnD said...

I had an an oppotunity to take photos like this on Tuesday! But, I was by myself with Emma on a college campus and didn't bring the camera with us as we walked around. She's just too much to handle alone! I love them...especially the water droplets splashing in the fountains.

Angela at mommy bytes said...

Beautiful fountain shots captured in mid air!

Secret Agent Mama said...

Dear Friend, you did this fountain PLENTY of justice! The shots are amazing!! I especially love the second last one.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

This was an excellent collection of watery shots. And a cutest kid too.

Have a great weekend!

Jasonblink said...

Great pics, the fountain look so vintage and kid looked so cuted in those photos...

Pato & Pearl said...

hehehe, these water sounds sure works for the kids...And as usual, seeing Sugar being mesmerize with her surrounding is just so lovely..

Pearl - happy weekend

Vic Grace said...

Some nice shots there of the fountain anyway. A lovely day out for you both

Technical problems or not, those are some great shots. Isn't it fun to rediscover the worls through he eyes of your child?

pelfy said...

I must say that all these pics look great to me. I am trying (hard) to take good pictures and I am glad I stumbled upon your blog. Anyway, I am back in action. Please visit when you have time, ok? Happy weekend.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Blimey Cor, I can't believe you're apologizing for these shots, they're amazing. :D

holly said...

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

All great photos and Sugarbear is a little cutie,.... that would make me leary, her sitting and leaning over the water. Glad all was well. Have a wonderful week.
