If you give a kid a camera they’ll want to take pictures of whatever they see, so you hand them your camera and let them run free.
You’ll need to have room on your memory stick, because taking a picture is one simple click.
The pictures they take may vary a lot, from buildings,
and even a tot.
They may start by taking pictures of themselves,
or of other kids sitting under shelves.
Some kids when they see a camera is near, may cover their face and hide in fear.
Most kids, however, will be eager to pose,
and you might see a girl with yogurt on her nose.
The kid may choose you to be the subject they use, and you must always accept and never refuse.
You will see lots of close ups of kids’ faces
and you’ll see some playing in sack races.
You may see a picture of a girl who is reading,
or pictures of some who are sitting down eating.
They may be playing in a little house,
or have a lot of food in their mouth.
You may even see some pictures of feet,
or of some dogs playing by the street.
The kids may be happy or dying of laughter, and these are pictures they’ll be lucky to capture.
- All of the above pictures were taken by my students or the kids from the comedores. I love letting kids take pictures with my camera because they always take so many and it shows how they are seeing the world.
