Yesterday, my little kleptomaniac hijacked my digital SLR. After complaining for a while that it was “too heavy”, yet refusing to relinquish control, she was soon clicking and flashing away like a pro:
To be honest, I was having a crappy day. I know I should have taken it away from her – it’s an expensive piece of equipment, after all – but she was happily entertaining herself for quite a while, so I accepted it as a blessing and left her to it.
It was only after she and Henry had (finally) gone to bed, that I had a chance to look through the results of her little foray into photography. Looking at the world through the
eye lens of a 2 year old is pretty interesting, it has to be said. It’s fun to see the terribly important things that she found so worth capturing:
I can’t believe how many of them were in focus – it’s clearly time for me to hang up my Canon and hand over the family photography responsibility to my tenacious toddler!
