My camera gets "borrowed" a lot, mostly by my daughter, and just occasionally by her brother. This makes me a little nervous, but I love discovering the photographs they've taken. The compositions are so unusual, and the things they choose to photograph are often surprising. I feel like I've been given some brief insight into the way they see the world...


  1. I think kids take better photos really - sure, there are lots of blurry ones, but their perspective is so unrestricted by convention.

  2. The washing basket one is brilliant, someone's got talent xx

  3. I love this post. I have been meaning to write a similar one. I took Ethan to the Art Gallery once and he was so bored, I gave him my camera to keep him busy so I could look at something for more than three seconds. He took the most unusual photos and where before he wasn't interested in the exhibitions he became engrossed in the pieces. Looking at them carefully and thinking about how to take the photos. We printed them off at home and made his own art gallery. The kids photos are gorgeous, worth printing and framing for sure.
