I went on a little adventure with my youngest yesterday. Cameras in hand, we took a short walk through our woods. She's shown a lot of interest in using my camera lately so I thought it would be fun to unearth my old point-and-shoot and let her snap a few pics. These are her pictures with no editing or cropping from me.
Not surprisingly, mushrooms were a favorite subject. She is my daughter, after all.
She also took a few that I think perfectly captured "her".
My heart swelled a little when I saw that last one, that she took looking into my dye pot.
She had no worries about how to frame her shots or of lighting or focus, she just snapped away, having a good time in the process. When we were looking at her pictures on the computer she was just as fond of the blurry and out of focus shots as she was the lovely ones.
I can appreciate the fact that this child, who is so adept at pushing my buttons and driving me crazy, is equally adept at reminding me to relax and go with the flow. It's like that with kids I guess.
I hope you have some relaxation and fun yourselves today. Happy Thursday.
