As a proud grandfather, I’ve found it hard to refrain from pointing the camera at our three granddaughters from the moment they arrived. So, it was probably inevitable that Speckly Woo! would develop a fascination with the digital photographic process.
We decided to order her a Vtech camera of her own, from Father Christmas, of course. He duly obliged and, ever since we wrestled it from the packaging, she’s been snapping away at a pace.
This week I offered to download her efforts and I was pleasantly surprised to find some rather nice shots in amongst the 300 or so stored on the SD card.
The photographs are quite low resolution but who’s going to get ‘picky’ when it comes to the artistic output of a three year old?
I’ve added a slideshow of her Vtech portfolio, just under the Speckly Woo! Gallery on this blog.
One thing we seem to have in common, is a love of shadows. Whenever we’re walking in the sun, she keeps a close eye on hers, just as I used to when I was a child.
