Sarah requested a camera for her recent, fifth birthday. We thought she’d move on to some other ‘toy’ but the camera was the number one choice for several months. We were just about to embark on our European adventure so we thought it a good present. She was very happy with the Nikon Coolpix L23 which allows anyone starting out in photography to point and push.
We notice that her framing is getting better and much more time is taken to compose each shot. I feel quite chuffed with her portrait of me, at Dove Cottage, earlier this week.

Sarah knows about flickr and wanted to ‘put her photos’ on the internet. I cannot see a reason to prevent her from doing this so we just set up an account. Here’s an interesting perspective of Dove cottage:
This is one of her first pics – the London Eye.
I remember my parents having a box brownie and some other camera that I played with at Sarah’s age. I did not own a camera at all until recent years. I wonder what early exposure (pun intended) will do for Sarah’s creative juices?
