Through The Eyes of a Child

It's 3:40 A.m.  I fell asleep earlier and slept for 2 hours and now I'm awake again! I was going through my picture files, cleaning some out, organizing them etc, and came across some my grandson took this past Aug.  I had just finished up my 84 Bits and Pieces Dancing Glass Wind Chime and had been taking pictures of it when Kai asked if he could take some.  I put the camera strap back on and let him have at it.  These are a some of the pictures he took.
Hint: Just click on the 1st one and then you can go through them pretty quickly! And they are so much more fun to look at in a larger size.

I have found that kids, from babies to older ones, really like wind chimes, and if they are shiny glass ones, all the better!

These are actually less than half of the ones he took that afternoon.  When his little sister Evie was about 7 mo's old, they came to visit.  There were a few times my daughter would go for a short walk around the complex, and  leave both kids in my care.  Kai is a piece of cake!  Evie at 7 mo's,  well that was different story!  I had a couple of different wind chimes on my patio and I found she would settle down and become a happy baby when I took her outside and ran my fingers across the wind chime making it sing. 
I have some "big" kid who goes by my apartment and once in a while will  run their hand across one of my wind chimes making it sing.  I can tell the difference between the wind, and a person making it sing!  When I'm outside, some of the kids around here will come by and ask if I'll make them make noise!  I love it!
Wishing I could be with my Kai and Evie for Christmas, but it's not to be this year.  Hopefully next year.  I was with them last Christmas,at their home,  they are so fun to be around.

Great pictures. You might just have a future photographer with that one. Sure has a great eye. Thanks for sharing

it's hard to be away from family at Christmas...I hope you're not spending it alone. And I love the picture he took looking up in the wind chimes. We have a bouy bell in our front tree, and I love the deep resonating sound.

Karen & Dakota I think he has the ability to be an awesome photograher too! Thanks for scoming by and leaving a comment - much appreciated!

Debbie - it is hard to be away from family at Christmas. I'm going to lunch with my son, his wife & daughter on Sunday - and will spend Christmas day with a friend. so, no I won't be alone. :)
I really like the pictures looking up too! The ones looking down would be even better if they didn't have his toes in them - although I sort of like the toes! lo It can be a little tricky to get the camera to focus on transparent glass. A bouy bell would be cool to have!
Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment- greatly appreciate it!

Great post and I agree it is hard at Christmas to be away from family. Thankfully, the family that matters to me most live with me so I won't be alone, although I have been in the past and it was not pleasant. I miss having the large family gathering at Christmas. Have a wonderful Christmas and tell Kai to keep up the great photography.

Hi Pam;
Yes, it is hard to be away from family at Christmas - fortunately I also have a son & another granddaughter nearby!
Thanks for coming by and have a lovely Christmas.
