through the eyes of luca

this morning i handed over my camera to luca and gave him an assignment.
take pictures of anything outside that you think is cool.  
that's it.  not what i would like or papi would like or gia would like.  only the things he liked and thought were interesting.  oh and don't drop the camera.

after one of those mornings (including kiddos punching each other and locking me out of rooms - seriously?), i took a quick breather, hopped on the computer and read this post.  loved it!  i pretty much immediately charged him with the task.

his eyes lit up in excitement and he shot out the door ready to snap some photos.  and what he came up with is just fantastic.

(i will caption his thoughts on each shot.)

this is a weed growing by our play area.

these are cool white flowers.
he is drawn to bright colored flowers, edibles to munch on, and weeds. i look forward to seeing how his interests evolve.  aren't the photos so great?  i love love love them!  and i think this will be a regular thing.  this kid has some talent!

I'm SO touched my little post inspired you both to have so much fun! And what a great photographer he is - his photos are beautiful! I think my favorites are the purple flower by the rocks, and the rose he gave you for mother's day. Very, very touching. Thanks for sharing this with me!

giving a kid a camera is so insightful into how they view their little world! and your boy definitely has talent.

luca is a great photographer!
