Our five-year-old was incredibly bored during the Labor Day barbecue contest we were helping out with the other day. So to give her something to do, and get her out of the way for a while, I gave her our digital camera, showed her how to use it and sent her off to get some pictures.
Looking at the results later, I found it interesting to see the world through the eyes of a five-year-old again. You're at waist level to everyone. I'd forgotten how big everything looks when you three feet tall.
Three or four pictures even stood out a particularly good compositions and interesting perspectives on ordinary objects. This abstraction is one of my favorites. The crop and composition are all hers.
