Macro Monday

This is a different sort of Macro Monday. I didn't take any of these photographs. My daughter did. She recently had her fourth birthday, and one of her greatest wishes was for a camera. Well, Grandma got her a Fisher-Price Kid Tough Digital camera. I'll be the first to admit that the picture quality isn't good. The pictures aren't that great when the camera is held still and there is adequate light. The thing I found interesting was the perspective of a four year old. That, and her choice of subject matter. She seems to want to take macro photographs. Unfortunately, the camera manual recommends no subjects closer than four feet. Stinkerbaby, of course, didn't read the manual. So, here are some of my daughters photographs. If you can overlook the blurriness, I think you'll enjoy them.

So, although not my typical photo, here is my entry in
Macro Monday at Lisa's Chaos.

This is probably my favorite. It's the bench on the deck.

This is a close-up of Grandma's tic-tack-toe set.

One of Grandma's throw rugs.

Couch fabric, up close and personal.

The pics are much better out of doors.

She took this from inside the van. It was a pretty, if cold, day.


Hope you enjoyed our little adventure into pre-schooler photography.
Have a great week!



  1. I think she did a great job! A budding little photographer. My granddaughter had the same camera when she was 4, you are right, the quaility is not the greatest. But, having a near indestructable camera does give them the opportunity to experiment. At 6, my grandie can take a pretty good shot with a real digital camera.

  2. Thanks! I'm pretty proud of her!
    Is anyone else having trouble getting Lisa's Chaos to come up or is it just my quirky connection?

  3. Aw, these are great! My daughter is four too and she has the same camera - I'm a bad mommy though and haven't put any new batteries in it since it stopped working a few weeks ago. Thanks for the reminder!
