I decided to live a little dangerously and let my son take a few pictures with the new camera. (I was weak in the knees and various other places *VAGINA* while he was holding it. Ah!) He’s always telling me things like “this would make such a great pictures, Mom!” But, until tonight, I’ve been too chicken to hand over the camera.
While we were out for a walk tonight, he saw these sunflowers and told me I should take some shots of them up against the mountains. I took a deep breath, removed the camera strap from around my neck, handed it to him and said “you take one.”
I wish I had captured the smile on his face because it was beautiful.
“Are you serious, Mom? You’ll let me take a picture with your new camera?”
“Yes. I’m serious.”
(It was a Moment.)
I explained a little to him what the numbers meant and stepped back while he shot away.
I think that shot proves he definitely has an eye for photography.
I figure as his mother, I should definitely teach him what little I know and allow him to explore the desire he has to take pictures.
Even if it does mean handing over the Rebel. (Ahhh, weak again.)
Not bad for his first try, eh?
