EDM Challenge #164: Draw a Camera
My two oldest grandchildren started to show an interest in my point-and-shoot digital camera just as they turned 3 (because I take so many pictures of them)! I taught them how to hold it carefully, focus until the green light came on, then shoot. They LOVED taking pictures and when unsure what we could get them for their birthday, we bought each the Fisher-Price children's digital camera. It is very simple, but can actually take reasonable photos. We recently took our cameras around the neighborhood, and my granddaughter took one photo - straight ahead- for every 10-12 steps she took! I had to delete a few from the card so she could capture the building at the end of our walk, the external facade of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I uploaded their JPEGs to their own folders on my computer and each got to select one for a 5 X 7" print to take home. The only down-side of these cameras for them is battery use!
