Ok.  One more photo contest this month :)  Obviously it would be great to win a prize or just have my photos acknowledged right :)  But honestly I enjoy participating in these because it not only inspires me to pick up my camera and shoot the wonders of the world but it also challenges me to hone my photography skills.  

With that said this photo contest is put on by Epiphanie.  They happen to make the dopest camera bags I have ever seen.  And they are giving away one of these bags to the winner of this contest. EEEEK! :)

Their April theme is RAIN.  After mulling over tons of photos I have taken with Instagram this month I finally decided on this one.  I like the vintage feel to it.  And despite the murky tone I like the ombre of the pastel colors in the rose and the rain drops that adorn it. 

I entered the Epiphanie Camera Bags + Zenfolio Picture It photo contest!

Do you have Instagram? Follow me @sisicakes and say hi :)

RTS April Photo Challenge: Water

It's another photo challenge! Love these :)

This one is for Rock the Shot and the theme is WATER.  This one challenged me a bit just because there are so many different images that the theme of water conjures up.  Here in California the weather is quite bipolar in April haha I mean it was literally 93 degrees last week!'s only Spring! The week before that we had thunder and lightning storms.  And this week, well let's say it rained again yesterday.  Sheesh ..Can't figure out if I need an umbrella or a bikini this month!

Anyway, I favored the sun over the rain and here is my submission...

Gina was floating around the pool soaking up the sun while I was soaking it up on the diving board.  I looked down at her and shouted "Hey! You are so photogenic right now!  Don't move!" haha

Do you enjoy the rain or the sun more in April? Hope you have both your umbrella and beach gear handy in any case ;)
