My Little Budding Photographer

A couple of years ago for Christmas, I gave all my kids used cameras. Brynn got Marty's old Nikon 2 megapixel point and shoot. The other day, she left it on my desk so that I could replace the batteries and I decided to upload all her photos. And I was pretty impressed by how creative and well composed a lot of her photos were. And I thought that little old camera - about an 8 or 9 year old model - did pretty well too.

About 80% of the photos were of Fred. I believe that there are several reasons for this:

  1. He's readily available
  2. She loves him
  3. He doesn't move very fast
  4. He's fabulous
 See that I mean? Pretty good photo, right? And a pretty fabulous cat, too.

There were also quite a few photos of other animals in our lives including Cookie, our neighbor dog (who does move VERY FAST and is extremely hard to photograph) and our good old dog, Maddie, who we lost at 15 last summer - we had her longer than any of the kids.

Awww, Maddie!

And the horses - this was my favorite of her horse, Bo:

Isn't that cute? I've never taken such a fun photo of a horse myself!

This is our miniature horse, Feather, he's actually cuter from further away, but it was probably fun for Feather to look down on someone for a change. (He's 31 inches tall.)

And this is our friend Molly's lovely dog, Ramona. It seems that Brynn's working on mastering the art of extreme noses, but she does take other kinds of shots too.

There were also several photos of her little brother because:
  1. He's readily available
  2. She loves him (although she probably won't easily admit it)
  3. He doesn't move very fast (when he's eating)
  4. He's fabulous

I was pretty impressed with some of the landscapes as well:

This is our valley's famous V rock, also know as, "The V". We like to hike up there from time to time. I love the composition on both of these!
And of course, there were no shortage of self portraits on that memory card. Behold, the photographer:

Good work, Sis. You must get it from me. :)

Brynn's photo of Bo made me laugh out loud!
