In a moment of motherly exhaustion recently I let Sol have the camera. He loved it, and worked out how to take pictures and videos and then watch them back with alarming speed. I really need to sort him out a camera that can be dropped without inducing heart attack in his parents, but so far it gets tied on to his person and away he goes. It buys me quite a lot of dishwasher/knitting/breastfeeding time. And what has been most surprising are the resulting photos. There are a few gems in there, and it’s a real insight into what interests a three year old. Ok, for every lovely photo of Otis there are five very short videos of the inside of his hat, but I thought I’d put a few of the better ones up:
What we spend a lot of our day doing (feeding Otis):
Very useful for locating lost objects- this is the smallest of Otis’ stacking cups wedged beneath the sofa:
And many of his brother (who gives Sol a much better reaction than he does his parents):
I like the moments and object he chooses to capture. It’s like a little window.
