A while back I gave my son an old camera of ours to play with. Then, for his 2nd birthday, he was given a camera from his aunt and uncle. Recently, I decided to go through his cameras and see what was on them. It gave me a glimpse into the world through a toddler’s eyes.
We visited the tulips fields in Mt. Vernon, Washington earlier this Spring. As you can see, below, I am taking a picture of my son taking a picture. I was quite pleased with the way my photo turned out, but I think I may like his better.
Most of his pictures are of me with the camera, because that is when he wants to use his camera, too.
I am particularly fond of this photo of an “angry” Daddy.
I’m sure he wasn’t really angry. We were at the zoo that day.
And there you have it, the world, as seen by a toddler. I think we may have a budding photographer on our hands.

Lately my son has been into his action figures, or as he calls them, “bad guys.” While watching him play with his bad guys, I had a mental image of Batman and Penguin fighting in a dark alley. The theme to this week’s photography challenge is “shadows.”
Using a spotlight in the corner of our living room, Batman and Penguin had a shadowy encounter.
Next week’s theme is “drink up!” With the Superbowl this weekend, I shouldn’t have a hard time getting a photo of that.

As I mentioned before, I am participating in a photography challenge hosted by Darcy at My3Boybarians.com. The challenge is to take a photo every week for one year: Project 52. Each week has a different theme. This week, the theme is a self-portrait. It turns out I’m not very good with the timer setting on my camera. I had a lot of difficulty getting the right settings for the lighting and the photos ended coming out kind of grainy looking.
Here are my best efforts.
I tried to capture myself in my most “natural habitat”. This is what I look like, in my home, on any given day.
I have a lot to learn about shooting on a tripod with a timer. I should probably keep reading, experimenting, and learning so my photos can come out a little better for next week’s challenge.
