...you never know what kind of pictures you'll end up with! But they're bound to be entertaining. They can range anywhere from the silly/goofy, to the amazing. You may be surprised at what you'll see when you're looking through your kid's eyes. You get a glimpse of how they view the world, and what they find important enough to photograph.
So, I'm issuing a challenge! Once a week, give one of your kids the camera. If you can't bear to put your fancy, cost-as-much-as-your-kids'-college-education camera in the hands of a drooling, clutzy preschooler, give him your cell phone camera, buy her a kiddy camera, or just get a disposable! Let her take pictures of a trip to the zoo, a family wedding, or just hanging around the house. See the world through your kid's eyes, whether that is 2 feet from the ground, or 6 inches taller than you!
Then, post the results on Tuesdays. One picture, seven pictures, how-ever-many (I totally made that up) stand out as something fun or funny or just cool. And, tell your friends to give their kid a camera, give them a link back here, and tell them to join us on Tuesdays!
Feel free to steal the graphic, too.
Here are my first If You Give a Kid a Camera shots.
If you give a small Princess a camera....
...you may find an adorable shot of one of your dogs.
If you give a Spiderman a camera....
....you may just get a little creeped out when open your cell phone to find a picture of a snake! *shudder*
If you give a preteen Ladybug a camera....
....you may wonder why your boy-crazy daughter felt the need to take a picture of her cell phone....with your cell phone.
And if you give a teen T-bone a camera...
....you may end up with the best picture of your beautiful cat, that you've ever seen.
(taken with his cell phone, totally unretouched. Her eyes are really that blue, and I've never been able to capture it before!)
What do you think will happen....if YOU give a kid a camera?
