So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


SPF: Through the eyes of a child

The lovely Kristine at Random and Odd made the Stuff Portrait Friday assignment focused on children. Her mission: give your kid the camera and see what he/she photographs. Ok, I didn't do this fresh, but picked out old photos. Back in March of 2007, I gave Pickle - who was 12 at the time - the camera and asked him to take pictures of his brother's baseball game because I was one of the coaches and pitching, so I couldn't shoot any photos. This is what he started out with: his PET toy and a drawing of the characters from the graphic novel that the toy is based on.

Then, there is some random dude walking his dog at the apartment complex across the street from the baseball field.
Next we have the photo of Hot Rod using his bat as a machine gun or some other sort of weapon, I'm not sure. Not exactly the kind of photo I would have taken, but it is cute, I have to admit.
This is one of my favorites that he took - again- something I wouldn't have shot, but I love the team feeling of the boys.
In July, I asked him to take some photos at the beach when he was tired of swimming with me and Hot Rod. I should have known. Just about six weeks away from turning 13, and this is what he took pictures of.
And, then, he gets a group shot. Yep, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree - even if it wasn't the tree from which his apple was grown ... just goes to show that environment plays as large a role as the gene pool from which he was spawned.
So, did you play? And is your kid as, er, uh, creative as mine is? The title of the assignment was 'through the eyes of a child.' Hmmm, not sure that mine was thinking so much as a child as he was thinking as a little man in training.
