Dayla has always known I was a photographer for my “job”, but I think seeing me in action in her classroom for the Letter Book Project has brought her awareness and interest of what I do to a whole new level.
For the past few months she has been asking to borrow our point and shoot camera so she could take pictures. I usually review them and they are about a 80/20 ratio of terrible/interesting. But it is not the pictures I usually love; I love that she will spend a lot of time going around and looking at things, with a lot of interest, before she snaps the picture. It is really fun to watch her creative process.
The other weekend when Grandma came down while I was gone at retreat, she went on another photo journey. This one has to be my favorite so far so I had to post it. She is definietly getting better at her pictures, and I love seeing what interests her.
I love seeing the world (and our house) from her point of view.
