Their Perspective

By June 29, 2006General

062906_biscuitDo you ever wonder what things look like through the eyes of your child?  It is something I am always curious about.  Everything seems larger to them, so their perspective is totally different than that of an adult.  So I decided to let the kids have the camera.  I showed them how to operate it, and let them loose.  I knew the results would be interesting, and they were. Here are my three favorites. Owen’s favorite food right now is sausage & biscuits.  He would eat them three meals a day if I let 062906_swings him!  So, it is no surprise that he decided to take a picture of his favorite treat, while he was eating it.  It is miraculous that he was able to press the shutter button, hold the camera  AND his biscuit, all at the same time! Then there is the swing set.  Hannah’s favorite activity.  Love the angle at which she took the photo.  It really demonstrates how little she is and how she looks up to everything. And lastly, Owen’s cars.  They are his favorite amusement.  I think this photo is cool because the 062906_cars vehicles are arranged just as he left them, as if time had been frozen, just for a millisecond, capturing what he loves doing best. I got prints made yesterday of all the photos they took and have plans to make a mini-book to hold them all.  I’ll be sure to post the results. I know I am planning on handing over the camera more often.  I even considered the idea of having an album dedicated to their perspective of all the holidays, events and trips we go on.  How interesting would that be for them to look back on when they are older?!?!  What’s your child’s perspective?  Hand them the camera today, post a link to your results in the comments section.  I’d love to see what your world looks like through their eyes!

    So cute! I can’t wait to get the pics developed that Braden took at the hospital when Bryson was born. I just hope there are a few good ones in there. Now, I’m going to have to make an album about that too. I might even let him help me put it together. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I think that’s a very cool idea – seeing life from your young children’s perspective. When I look back on photos that my kids took when they were teenagers (now 20 & 23)it makes me laugh out loud! They had such a humorous slant on life, how they saw it and seemed to always capture it on film! Love those!
