I lent my camera to a four-year old yesterday and enjoyed the opportunity to see the world through his talented eyes.
Happily, that world is chock full of joy. Our little friend Miles and his littler sister Lily hung out with us at our cabin and we all had a great time enjoying all the things that make childhood universally sweet — sled rides, snow angels, swings, stuffed animals , rocking horses, electric trains, and M&M cookies.
They approached each activity with a delightful combination of intense concentration and unfettered glee.
“Can I use that?”Miles asked, pointing to my camera.
“Sure,” I said. I hooked it around his neck and let him go.
What follows are a series of shots Miles and I took, and a couple two-year old Lily shot as well.
It’s been a while since I hung out with such tiny people and I’m happy to say the view is still very sweet from that close to the ground.
