My daugther has taken an interest in photography. She is using my old camera I had let my mom have (sorry for borrowing it back mama!) to start taking with us on some of our adventures and around the house. I love seeing her this way, focusing on the way she is seeing the world.
She was getting a little frustrated the other day though, because she wasn’t fast enough to get a photo of this beautiful butterfly we came across. This hobby of photography turns into a great way to teach her about the value of patience and practice. She sees how passionate I am about capturing the world around us in creative ways. But I explained to her how the technical skills and learning the camera didn’t just happen overnight. I am interested to see what shots she gets!
In the meantime, here are some shots I got on our little saunter through Riverbend Park.
I’m hoping the kids will learn about patience from one of those great teachers: Nature.
It sure helps me to slow down and pay attention.
