As I read

I find it is much easier to read. Maybe it is at the right point now.

Little Prince’s Photo Blog:

Partially as a distraction, and partially just to see what he would do with it, the Queen and I let the Little Prince have one of our old cameras. He doesn’t have constant access to it, but when we are out and about he is allowed to bring it along and take pictures of whatever he finds interesting. When he is older, I’ll ask him if he wants to start a photo blog to document and share the snaps he has taken. For now, though, I asked if I could share some of them with my friends and he quickly and happily said yes.

So, every Thursday this month, I’ll be posting one of his pictures. Maybe I’ll include some words, or maybe I’ll let his picture speak for itself… I guess you’ll have to keep checking back in to find out for yourself.

It was his idea to take a picture of me taking a picture of him. Again with the silliness, yes, but I love pictures like this. The Queen and I have several similar shots from our wedding, where our photographers got pictures of friends and family taking pictures themselves. Perhaps it is representative of our current society, where even our phones have cameras, and we all feel the need to click away and capture every little moment, from the meals we eat to the climax of our best adventures…

I’m not sure what he was trying to capture with this picture.  It was his first backpacking trip and rather than take shots of the scenery he focused mainly on taking pictures of himself, his GMan, and me.  He got some good pictures there.  Of the handful of scenery pictures he took, this was the best.  It sure makes the terrain look stark and steep.  It was stark.  Our hike was mostly through a desert landscape with only the occasional tree offering some respite of shade.  It was not steep at all, though.  The trail did climb a couple hundred feet from the trailhead to where we turned around to head home, but it was a nice meandering incline.

This was the Little Prince’s first, and perhaps his last, experience with a disposable camera. It was one of those unique moments where I realized he was interacting with something his generation would likely never know about it. So, here it is, proof that once upon a time, the Little Prince saw (and used) a camera that had actual film instead of digital files.

If you are wondering, he also knows what VHS tapes are. One of his favorite movies is one he watches on VHS. He has seen cassette tapes, too, but hasn’t yet heard one played through my stereo. He has no idea what a rotary phone is, however. That one is particularly funny because at his first eye appointment they showed an image of one (using pictures rather than letters or numbers to test his vision) and he didn’t call out what it was. It wasn’t because he couldn’t see it. It was because he didn’t know what it was. Perhaps it is time for the eye doctors to update their testing materials? I think so.

In a bit of silliness, I am the Jester after all, I love that he used a digital camera to take a picture of a film camera…

The beach was deserted except for a few abandoned umbrellas that would get swept away with the next high tide. The people had vanished, though none who came looking for them afterwards could say where or when they had gone. They had simply gone. Which was a shame, because conditions were perfect for a day at the beach.
