sunset capture

my nine year old daughter, abbey often grabs my camera and runs around photographing everthing in sight. and i do mean everything, she captured the sky over DASH HOME FARM and to my surprise she got these shots. my little entrepreneurial photographer.

this one with the hay is my favourite!

i'm proud of you , abbey!

I'm touched by the beauty. Abbey has gift, for sure to nurture. It's the perfect age ... my children often teased me about my camera 'fetish' ... now all grown, theirs are never far away, delighted to share 'the perfect' shot! (My grown daughter and I have taken many photo classes together ... my crowning moment ... she WON 1st place, competing against me!)

marmee said...

thank you! i am glad she takes my camera and does such things.

i think she has a penchant for it like i do!

that is so awesome about sharing your talent with your daughter.i too have grown daughters and sons that share in my love for photographing. it is a pleasure to watch and help them develop their own personalities and passions.

Beautiful shots!! My 6 yr old daughter has also taken up photography. She'll take pics of anything from bugs and leaves to stuffed animals and toys. It's fun to watch them experiment with the camera, isn't it? :)

marmee said...


yes it is fun to watch their creative side open up. digital photography has made it a little easier to let them explore.
