I always keep the camera on a little shelf beside the TV, for easy access – ok I lied, because I’m lazy. Since we once in a while let the kids have a turn with the camera, they know how to pick it up and snap shots. So, more often than not I come into the room and find them snapping photos and laughing so hard they are close to tears. I usually get a little worried, worried they will break it and then I put it up on a slightly higher shelf (see: still lazy).
But then when I get to look back on the random surprise photos on the camera, I kick my self for putting the camera up on a slightly higher shelf. ‘Candid gold’ is what I like to call these, some pretty pixelated but for photos taken by a 4 and 5 year old – pretty amazing, if I do say so myself.
