Weekend Wanderings: Christmas Through the Eyes of a Child
This last week I had an opportunity to go into the city and take photos of the Christmas decorations. I wasn’t alone, there is a woman who does Social Snappers and her 5 year old daughter who keeps wanting to come with her camera and take photos as well. I love to encourage anyone who wants to take photos, so I sent her a special invitation and last Wednesday I want into the city with Lola and her mum.
We had a great time wandering around taking photos of everything that we saw. She was using a small Crayola camera that her parents had given her, one that could handle dropping. I was so impressed with how she took photos, she would compose them carefully before taking them. It was obvious that she knew what she wanted to take. Her mother has given me permission to show you her photos,
Lola’s images of Melbourne.
Didn’t I say she was good, when you consider the camera she was using and being five years old, the photos blew me away. Certainly someone that I hope doesn’t stop taking them. It was great fun seeing the Christmas Festival through the eyes of a five year old. My daughter came as well, my eldest Briony, but she has grown out of this sort of thing. It is always nice to see things like Christmas through the eyes of a child.
I took lots of photos as well, but no where near as many as Lola, mine are pretty boring compared to hers, but I will show them to you anyway. Christmas is very close now and we have a tree up and there are presents under it, so I guess Christmas is going to happen here this year, whether we are ready for it or not. Here are my photos, I have kept a couple to myself for the MM splash of colour, is yours ready?
