I'm just gonna buy the kid his own camera

And I'll let him take tons of pictures like this:



Seriously, I love it. I know he almost certainly didn't mean to take this shot while he was snapping pics with the iPhone, but still, he ended up with an interesting composition. To me anyway. You may be looking at it and thinking "Yeah dude, that's uh, that's really great or whatever." Quit rolling your eyes. Shut up.

Anyway. Handing the camera over to the kids usually yields, well, usually a lot of blurry shots, often of crotches since kids are short. And pervy. But just as those googlemaps vans sometimes manage to grab some fantastic shots, a kid left alone long enough with the camera can sometimes make some cool accidental art. Or, you know, break your fucking camera.

I DO like the shot! I wouldn't like, frame it, or anything, but it would certainly make me smile to see it on my phone. :)

I let my son use my BlackBerry a few times while at camp recently to take some snapshots. Most were of things inverted . . . I hope it was the camera . . .

Oooh! Next you should let the kid do his own post to your blog from the phone. ;-)
