Humuhumu has been attempting to learn the art of sneaking up on Telstar.








She also enjoys taking the lens cap on and off my dSLR. My plan is to teach her to use it as soon as she can hold it, so I don’t want her to be afraid of it or think that she shouldn’t touch it. This could backfire on me horribly, but I'm willing to take the risk.

That was how I got started, as well. My dad had bags and bags of camera bodies and lenses, and they were never off-limits to me, I could play with them as much as I wanted. The only rule was that I had to be seated on the floor in a carpeted area, so that if I was digging through a bag and dropped something expensive in the process, (A) it wouldn't fall very far, and (B) it would likely survive because 1970s shag carpet. If we were out and about and I wanted to take photos, he had a less-expensive older camera body he let me use, and the rule was that I have the strap around my neck at all times.

Aha, I'm glad to hear there is precedent for this! I may be upgrading in a few weeks, so the old dSLR can become hers.

Also, note to self: replace aging rug in living room with shag to facilitate the plan.

They're so cute together! It reminds me of the photos of the boy sleeping with his puppy that were making the rounds on the net earlier this week...

Yes, it's especially sweet when he comes into her room in the morning to greet her when she's just gotten up. He rolls around on the floor and she makes sleepy attempts to pat him. So cute.

Images will not load via my fancy new phone, da*mn it! I'll have to drag out the Dino-laptop tonight to see. Meanwhile, I look forward to seeing her images. The boys' shots were often useless, but sometimes? ...they were fascinating & a reminder that their perspective was certainly not our own.

She hasn't taken many photos herself yet with the dSLR although she's managed a fair few with my phone - she likes doing videos, which are hilarious if a little dizzying. :)
