Photos by Max

Max is growing up, enough so that I feel comfortable letting him use the "big person" camera without me having a panic attack every time he touches it. I decided to take him out for a little photography project in the neighbourhood to see what we could see. I told him to take pictures of whatever he thought was "photo-worthy" (this was quickly followed by a vocabulary lesson on the word "worthy"). Here's what my little guy decided was "worthy" of his lens.

These little red flowers are everywhere!

Getting down to the nuts and bolts of things

Following in mommy's footsteps with his love of iguanas

We call this "The Hairy Tree"

He spotted a very groovy tree trunk

An odd thing to find in the park

He spotted these bananas in a tree (I didn't, good catch bud!)

Apparently Mommy is worthy of a shot

Not too bad for a five year old (though I might be a little biased). Unfortunately now he wants a "big person" camera all his own, no more kid stuff he says. Toy cameras aren't going to cut it much longer in this house! Now, if I happen to win this photo contest which has a fabulous camera prize, I might just be willing to pass on one of the "big person" cameras to Max. How about giving me a little clickety vote and help out both Max and I? Pwetty pwease?

I think kids have a unique perspective of the world. But of course, Max is awesome. He took some great pictures!

Nancy said...

Wow! Max did great...and an excellent job of focusing on the subject. And he chose some great subjects!

Jajaja - looove your plug, and it worked!!!! He is such a cutie :)

Amanda, thanks! He does have a unique perspective, I didn't share the photos he took of the piles of garbage, haha!

Nancy, he was obsessed with the zoom on the camera, kept playing with it until he got what he wanted in the viewfinder, he cracked me up. I'm kind of amazed that he focused so well, "focus" is not a word he usually understands, haha!

MAJL, thanks so much, I appreciate your kind words and the vote!

Endless Tours- Thanks kindly!

On Mexican Time- The plug was a last minute addition, I really didn't think of it until I was ready to hit publish then realized it was a perfect tie-in! Thanks for the vote, you can click daily!

He's got a good eye. The flowers are terrific, and the iguana, and of course your portrait! When does he get his own camera?
