People Beware: Child with Camera

Today, I was playing around with my camera while Alyssa was playing a game on the computer.  It was so cute to watch how intent she was with her game.  I am always amazed by her gaming coordination…I’m sure that it will only improve.

 After taking a few pictures Alyssa asked me, “Why do you always have to take pictures of me?”  She was very exasperated.  So, I asked her if she wanted to take any pictures with my camera.  In the past I have never been able to convince her to to use a camera so it kind of surprised me when she said yes.

I learned a lesson today.  It is a good thing that I let her use a digital camera and not a film camera.  A camera in a five year old’s hands produces a variety of “interesting” photographs.  She took a total of 106 pictures…I know, I can’t believe it either.  A good portion of them will probably be deleted or at least not shown outside of the family (for some of them captured the messiness of my room ) but some of them were actually decent pictures.

It was cute to see what she took pictures of…there were pictures of toys and of things that she has accomplished.  There were pictures of animals and family members.

My only concern now is how I am going to keep her from constantly begging to use my camera again.

  1. Oh I can believe it! I had to program a loud screaming sound to play on my camera whenever it was turned on so that I could always know when one of my little brothers was playing with it.  but hey! everybody’s got to try it! who could not like photography??
