Budding Photographer


I hung out with Ani for most of the day today. We made it down to the Upcycle Exchange open house and got a bag full of crafting supplies for only $5. It was worth the drive in the rain for sure. We then ate at our favorite Chinese buffet. We came home and downloaded all the pictures she's taken with the camera I got her for Christmas onto my hard drive, ordered some prints and than went out into my swampy back yard and took some more shots. It was very near a perfect afternoon, which I am about to top off with a nap so I think that will complete the perfection.






First, I wanted to share some of my favorite shots of hers. I think she is developing quite an eye. She takes lots of bizarre pictures and gets stuck taking 20 shots of a plate of biscuits or her lips but that is part of the fun of discovering what your camera can do. Many of her best shots are of her animals. They have a zoo at their house which includes 4 snakes. This shot of her snake feeding is a bit disturbing but I think it captures exactly what she was going for. Then there is this one of her birds. Mike said she should be a National Geographic photographer with all the practice she is getting with animals. Finally there is the best of the countless lip shots. She is an interesting kid that is for sure.

what a great time for her to explore the fun of photography. I discovered how much I enjoyed it just recently. I wish I had started learning at a much earlier age. I have the same technique as she does, taking dozens of shots of the same thing and also taking pictures of some rather bizarre things.

She has a very interesting eye, which is half the battle in photography, right? Ani looks like she has a very interesting point of view! Good for her!! :)

I like the fact you're encouraging her to freely experiment. Being creative is good for the soul :)

That snake shot is amazing and icky all at the same time. She seems to be developing quite a talent!

Oh my goodness! That snake one is disturbing but part of nature. Funny that she takes pictures of lips. Kids!!

Awh. I always love seeing the little ones interested in art:) Learning young really does develop the best. She's lucky to have an auntie like you!
