Two weeks ago we headed to Quail Botanical Gardens. I had a surprise for Christopher. He's been bugging me for the longest to use my camera which I only allowed once. On this day, I would secretly walk with my old camera, the Canon Powershot A300, and it would be his for the afternoon. Yes it's outdated but it still works and I rather have that break that my current one.
Getting messy and having fun at QBGs Seeds of Wonder
After playing with our friends at the Seed of Wonder, I changed their clothes (they were soaked) and we headed to the Garden section for a lovely stroll by ourselves. It was there I handed him the camera. I still made him strap the thing around his little hand, twice. Just in case. He was so excited! I told him, "take pictures of anything that you find to be beautiful", and so he did.
These are my favorites.
You know, sometimes I forget that things must look so big to these kids. Those trees alone must look amazing
And then there were these. Don't laugh!
And of course my foot in a blur....and his favorite he called it SHADOWS. I took one also (a shadow photo) but it's his time to shine :-)
