Okay, so the Proclaimers’ song “Lulu Selling Tea” actually says, “The world from FOUR feet off the floor.” But my two year old is only about 2 feet tall, so I’m adapting the line! For a while now, I’ve wanted to post the photos he takes with my phone — they are so wacky, and yet there is often something about them that catches you off guard. It’s as if he sees light and color in a way that I don’t — until I look at his photos.
Then again, every mother thinks her children are geniuses, right? So, just for fun, here are a few of his photos…
I love these photographs and I see what you mean about seeing colour and patterns. What a great way to see in the mind of a toddler/young child!
Thanks, Ruth! Yes, I am just noticing the patterns in the bricks… I’m hoping he’ll take more good ones soon! Yesterday, he took a bunch of a paper cup, so I will probably not post that one… 🙂
These are just great. What a different perspective. They really do make you think. More please! 🙂
Thanks, Marianne! Am waiting for some good ones to display…
Great photos, young people do tend to see things so much differently… 🙂
Thanks, Katie! Yes, kids do a have a unique, more honest perspective, I think. Whenever I start getting grumpy and agitated, I only have to listen to my kids, and they let me know I’m being a pain! 🙂
I love the photos! They show such a different perspective to what we see. A unique tool for understanding young children too. 🙂
Thank you, Kendra! I have a few more that I need to post… Yes, I’m sure we could all learn a lot from children’s photos about different ways to look at the world!
