Owen has taken a great interest in taking pictures. I'm sure most kids love the control of the camera and the digital screens are so great for that instant feedback of what you are doing. My mom has been giving hims some tips along the way... Christmas, they practiced "zooming" at the botanical garden and in Hawaii, he seemed to have camera in hand whenever he wasn't heading for the water. He mostly likes scenery and self portraits, but one afternoon chose a human subject.... a little boy came up and asked if Owen wanted to take his picture, and the two of them staged their own 2 minute photo shoot, selecting background, pose, and both far and near shots. My mom and the boys' grandmother just stood back and watched. Too funny.
Here is what Hawaii looks like to a 4 1/2 year old.
