Default leaves

I found this photo on my camera as I was browsing through. My 5 year old picked the leaves set them on the counter in the garage and took the photo. I think he has natural talent! What do you think?

A child prodigy, there's no doubt! Did you know he was doing this? Digital cameras are, I think, absolutely wonderful for little children, particularly since the kids can get almost instant gratification. If they'd been around when my son was little, I'd have gotten a digital camera for him. Granted, it would have been a cheap one, but I'd have done it. Encourage that boy of yours.

I admit I wished I had digital when I was a child. I was lucky though my mother was into photography and had her own darkroom in her teens so I wanted to try it too...here's some of my first darkroom experiments when I was 11:

Leave it to an 11-year-old boy to design either monsters or robots! But then, what's really important is the fact that the 11-year-old is taking the time to design. I'll bet the experience back then has traveled with you up through all the intervening years. Children should be allowed to imagine.
