My 3 year old daughter and I was walking in the desert earlier today. I was taking pictures of birds, when she asked if she could borrow my camera. I admit I hesitated a couple seconds before handing it over..but decided that there was no real reason to say no. My philosophy when it comes to parenting is to say yes if it’s at all possible, and not use the word no, unless it’s absolutely necessary.
She took six pictures, four were blurry, this is the other two (I only cropped them.)
I was five when my grandma gave me my first camera, and I’ve been taking pictures almost every day since then. Maybe I’ll give my daughter a simple point-and-shoot camera for christmas this year. I think she would use it. I catch her stealing my cellphone, and taking pictures with it every day. It’s very convenient that nowadays you can choose to only save the good pictures.
Surely the model could use a little tune-up (this was unplanned, and out in the middle of nowhere)…but I really think the photos are pretty good for a 3 year old. I guess the proud mama in me had to share them 🙂
I hope you had an awesome day!
