I planned to blog this before Christmas, but just didn’t have time. Here it is now.. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day!
My camera lately seems to have another set of paw prints all over it – those of my little girl, Maia.
She is getting more interested in taking pictures and often picks up her famous pink toy camera. When we were in Dusseldorf for the day we visited a camera shop and bought two disposable cameras – one for mummy and one for Maia. I’ve scanned a couple of the piccies in to show you, mine are on the left and Maia’s on the right:
It was funny to see how Maia wanted to take a lot of pictures of the same thing, I guess that’s learning from a mummy playing with digital. It was a challenge to get her only take one and move on. It was good to reflect on the preciousness of film. Inevitably, our 24 shots were taken before we knew it, but it was definitely a fun way to spend a day together.
This is an image that Maia took of me the other day with my big camera. It’s a little unnerving giving her full control of my lovely Canon, but with a macro lens attached, I can still at least be close enough to hold the lens. Image was recovered in Photoshop with the help of Florabella actions and textures. I’d highly recommend them if you are interested in playing with your images a bit.
And one of my favourite Christmas pictures from last year:
On a side note, Maia’s daycare breaks up on Friday 18th December and thus, so do I. I will be resuming my office days on the Monday 4th January. Remember to keep a check on my website for changes in the new year. I look forward to all the pictures we’ll be taking together.
Additionally, here are a few more piccies a couple of days before Christmas when I had another day to myself with my little monkey, who likes to jump on the bed! Had to share them because they make me smile.
