kai has naturally become my right-hand man around here. as the oldest, i guess thats just the way it goes. but through it all, and undeniably, he is happiest when a request for help involves using my camera. big b and i gifted him a real deal digital camera for christmas this year based on his enthusiasm. definitely the right idea. although, i question the influence my blogging has on him when i peruse his memory card and find multiple shots of his favorite toys and drawings placed in various locations and lighting. i envision future girlfriends questioning why all of his photos of her are extreme close ups of her hands stirring cream into coffee or her feet while she's putting her shoes on, or worse, just the plate of food she was about to eat. at any rate, he went on a class field trip to plimoth plantation yesterday and came home with these::
seriously, the best 100 bucks we EVER spent! i am so impressed with his eye. he had no idea what i was so excited about. we got to discussing the photographs and he went through a bit of his mentality concerning when and where and why he took certain shots and skipped others. it was amazing to me. i am amazed by him. end of story!
