One of my favorite photos – taken by a nine-year-old

14 Aug

I love this photo — for so many reasons…firstly, because it was taken by my friend’s nine-year-old daughter and I think it’s a great thing to hand your camera to a child and see the world the way they see it.  Secondly, it was Christmas day and just one-month after I got Tilly, my little west highland terrier. But mostly, I love this photo because it really captures a moment:  Tilly still just a pup trotting along beside me and me thinking about how relaxing it is to be walking along the beach on Christmas day after a huge Christmas dinner.

If you’re a photography enthusiast and are lucky enough to have kids in your life, don’t forget to hand them the camera now and again…you’ll be happily surprised by what you get back.
