Ten on 10: Old camera, new perspective

We have an old Canon PowerShot A40 that Ada has been playing with on and off since well over a year ago now. We don't use it anymore because we have something much fancier. The other night Tim said, "Why don't we put new batteries in it and see what she does?" "Yeah, OK." I said and went to get batteries. Wouldn't you know we were out of AA batteries - easily rectified with a trip to Target on Thursday morning. We got home and I sat down with Ada to show her how to actually use the camera.

Then I let her have at it. She took pictures all day long, which is much better than I did. I spent the day cooking and cleaning for dinner guests. At the end of the day I realized I'd barely picked up my camera but she had been at it all day. So I'll help her participate in this months Ten on 10. I want to make it clear that this is not a mockery - you all know how much I love this photo project. Rather, when I sat down and scrolled through her pictures I was loved learning about her perspective of the world around her (looking out the window through a screen, how tall her dad is) and what she found interesting enough to take a picture of - mostly our cats, her parents and her toys.

All photos by Ada Caroline Shepherd, almost 3 years old

So awesome to see the world from her wee perspective!

Also, it was SO wonderful to meet you in San Francisco! My friend, Lindsay, snapped a pic of the two of us which I am thankful for...if you are on facebook I can share it with you.

Wishing you and your family all the best with your big, exciting changes coming up!

Warmly, Nici

ACK! This is too awesome. I love the toilet shot as well. Too funny. Of course, PJ would have probably dropped the camera IN the toilet. :)

Oh my gosh I love this idea! And it was really interesting to see what she wanted to take pictures of! I'm totally doing this with my son when he's a little older!
