If You Give a Kid a Camera--Part Deux

If you give a kid a camera. . .

She'll have great perspective. . .

and find beauty in the ripples. 

She'll get to the root of the issue at hand. . .

with her best friend by her side. 

She'll find awesome patterns on the ground. . .

and awesome patterns in the sky. 

She'll keep a close eye on the passengers in the boat. . .

no matter what their size. 

She'll see mossy scarves in places most of us never notice. . .

again and again. 

She'll insist on celebrating even the smallest of victories . . .

and see angels in the clouds, joining in the celebration.
And as the sun goes down on her busy day. . .

she'll take time to rest her extremely keen eyes.

  1. These are beautiful! I need to remember to let the kids take pictures more often. (Though I highly recommend being careful at parades. Jude was sitting on the curb witha camera and we have lots of pictures of Mickey's..erm..tail.

    1. LOL! That's true. I had to sift through 123 photos to get these good ones! :)

  2. Beautiful! I love when my daughter gets the camera - though it is true there are lots of rejects too! :)

  3. VERY cool - she definitely has her Mama's Eye for pics. I couldn't even begin to get something like this and I've got nearly 40 yrs on her! Love it, April, thank you for sharing! She's SO pretty, sleeping OR awake!
