I was going to put my creations for this weeks theme on Thursday Sweet Treat on here, but decided to put my grandson's creations on here instead. My daughter along with her Army husband, and son live in Ft. Bragg, NC - a long way from New Mexico! I haven't seen them in over a year (except for a very brief time last month due to a loss in the family.) I was so intent on getting my creations entered this week, that I had to go out and take pictures an hour after they came over yesterday! After I took my pictures, my grandson asked me if he could take some pictures. I was a bit hesitant at first, oh yeah I'm going to let my 9-yr-old grandson go carting around my DSLR! I decided that as long as he left it on the tripod and I was with him, that he could take some pictures. I set it on auto, and showed him how to do a half click to focus on what he wanted, and how to turn the lens to zoom in on things. It didn't take much and we were off! He took around 50 pictures between 2 different photo sessions. After we put them on the computer, we played around with cropping, and these are the results of his photography excursions.
It was definitely a through the keyhole of imagination kind of experience for both of us.
I got so into playing around with the photos and him, that I completely spaced out sending in my photos to the Thursday Sweet Treat Blog!
His 1st crop - yes he did do the cropping on these!
We took a few minutes to set this one up so the frog wouldn't have leaves in front of him, but he still wanted that "forest" atmosphere to it!
