Give a Kid a Camera

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

I had the pleasure of 5-year-old Isabel’s company on Tuesday. We went out for lunch. We went to a park. We visited my mother, who gave her a book (which Mom wrote) to help her learn to read. We went back home and colored in the first few pages of the reading book, and learned to read four color words. What fun!

Isabel has used my digital cameras for about a year. I love that digital photography has no film and developing cost. If a photo does not work, I delete it and it costs nothing but time.

Tuesday Isabel asked if she could use my camera while I drove her around town. I did give her the camera. This is my favorite photo of the bunch, taken from the perspective of her car seat. I would say it is an accurate self portrait.

I present to you, “My Feet, by Isabel”

I love that the clouds are there. She spent a lot of time analyzing what shapes she saw in the clouds while we were together. She saw all sorts of animals up there. I love that imagination.

Adult photographers might like to get that angle, too! Nice job, sweet Peanut!
