Tea’s Grandma Cookie and Grandpa Bugs surprised him recently with a functioning camera of his very own to take to Thailand. He loves taking pictures and then scrolling through them on the screen.
He’s using a Kidizoom, which actually takes decent pictures for an indestructible kid-camera:
However, the pictures get awfully blurred if the camera shakes at all while the shutter is pressed. I’ve tried explaining this to Tea and you can probably guess that I’m going to have to explain it a few more times before he learns to stop moving while he takes a picture.
And yet, he adores it. Here is his shot of the monarch we raised:
I’m helping him with a photo-blog over at Put That Camera Down to collect some of his favorite shots. If any other kiddos want to join in the fun, get them a wordpress account and give me their email address so I can set them up – Tea would love some additional contributors.
