Future Ansel Adam?

Zoe loves taking pictures.  She is constantly "borrowing" our cell phones to take pictures and has already killed my original Sony Cybershot.  For future reference: a 4 year-old little girl, a tile floor, and a digital camera do not make a good combination!  But that's in the past.

For Zoe's 5th birthday, we got her a digital camera.  It's perfect.  She loves it.  She's been taking pictures for close to a year.  I've never actually "uploaded" any of her pictures onto my laptop.  She's never asked me to...until recently.

She sees me upload my shots all the time, and this week, she asked me to "do it to my camera too, Mom."  So I did.
Some of her favorite subjects are...well...anything and everything.  She'll take pictures of anyone who may be asleep next to her...
...and then she'll document what time she's NOT sleeping...
(No, they don't generally share a bed.  This was a "special" night that they got to fall asleep in Mommy & Daddy's bed.  Then when we went to bed, we put them in their own rooms)

I wish I had saved the pictures from a few weeks ago.  We were on our way to a friend's house to swim in their pool.  I stopped at Dunkin Donuts first, for an iced coffee.  Once we got to the pool, I checked out Zoe's camera.  There were dozens of shots of nearly every building from DD all the way to the pool.  Maybe she has a future in photo journalism?

Not too bad!! I've never done that for Kaitlyn though someday I should :) Probably be tons of photos of the cat and the cat's butt... She likes animals, not babies!

ok so my first comment got erased since I was going quickly! LOL
Did I ever tell you that we considered naming Aramis -- Ansel Adam? Tell Zoe that Miss Becky LOVES her pictures and now we have to get her scrapping as well.
