Ella Photos...






We have always let the girls have the camera to take pictures...we did this even in the day of 35mm although the digital really reduces the risk...and today Bronwyn had a friend over and they were very occupied with crafts and Ella was feeling a little odd girl out...so she asked if she could take some pictures. I left her to it and told her when she was finished to bring it inside. She came in and handed it to me and I was amazed at the ones she had taken of herself!!! I love to see their perspective, what catches their eyes and what is important enough to warrant a photo...they do not have our biases on what is photo worthy or on perspectives or on angles they just shoot from the hip and out of that experimentation often comes art and masterpiece. The above were all Ella's doing...there were many more but this is a sample of her focus all taken from the hammock. I am amazed...

Apart from the honesty in the photo's, the amazing thing to me is that she's not even five!
