As most of you know, I thoroughly enjoy the time I get to spend with my grandchildren, especially the one on one time. Each grandchild has their own unique personality and interests which are becoming quite evident in the oldest three. The two youngest are still babies; their turn will come.
Recently my two and a half year old granddaughter has shown an interest in photography. Since she has been the subject of the oh so many pictures her parents and grandparents have taken on our cell phones since her birth, it is no small wonder she wants to try it herself. She is very independent, and getting more so every day.
I thought I would let her “show me how” to take a picture on my cell phone, and I was amazed at how proficient she is at it. Sometimes. Eventually. When she remembers to keep her fingers off the lens. It is amusing and fascinating (and so cute) to hear her talk herself through the steps.
- Find the red “camera” button
- Hold up the phone
- Look for Grandma (I was her subject)
- Move my (her) fingers
- Push the white button
These were her first few attempts at getting the fingers out of the way…
Practice makes perfect; she did get better as she kept trying…
She is definitely a quick learner…as well as very determined and perseverant, all wonderful personality traits.
