Ten Year Old Boy + Camera = Amazing Footage

Tuesday, we set out for the bus stop with a car load of kids on an icy road.

I had given my 10 year old son the camera to take a picture of the hill we go down every day. 

What he caught was a series of pictures which documented our wild ride rather well.  Seriously.  :)  (If you want to see those pictures, scroll to the end of Tuesday’s post.) 

Today’s post, however, is about the other pictures he took.  The ones he took while I was out of the car checking on our elderly friend.

This first picture shows the only girl in the car.  Notice the serious look on her face.  I am proud of her for maintaining her dignity.  She showed great maturity and self respect.   And this was the only picture demonstrating these particular traits, I might add.Serious faceI get the feeling my boy found no fun in that.  Because that’s the only picture he took of her. 

This next one would be his self-portrait.Self Portrait

Followed by two of his buddies in the back seat.

The children will play

Let the fun begin 

 

But the last two pictures are my favorites. 

 

Mount Nostril.Nose Hairs

 

And The Grand Canyon.When you give a kid a camera 4

I’m leaning towards waiting a while to get him a camera of his own.  :)

That is so cute! I have some interesting photos from giving my 5 yr old the camera in the past. Most of them were of feet though! LOL...Thanks for sharing.

Oh too cute! And I can so relate. My 7 year old takes the silliest pictures when he gets his hands on the camera!! LOL!
Happy Friday my friend.

Life with Kaishon said...

I think they are fabulous! Life thru the eyes of a child : ). There will be tons of nostril pictures and open mouths, but that is ok, cause they are all a part of growing : ). I love his freckles!

I love it!!! They say a mark of a good photographer is going above and beyond to get a good shot, he is well on his way!!
