If you give a kid a camera

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,

Image

to money,

Image

and even a tot.

Image

They may start by taking pictures of themselves,

Image

or of other kids sitting under shelves.

Image

Some kids when they see a camera is near, may cover their face and hide in fear.

Image

Most kids, however, will be eager to pose,

Image

Image

and you might see a girl with yogurt on her nose.

Image

The kid may choose you to be the subject they use, and you must always accept and never refuse.

Image

Image

You will see lots of close ups of kids’ faces

Image

Image

and you’ll see some playing in sack races.

Image

You may see a picture of a girl who is reading,

Image

or pictures of some who are sitting down eating.

Image

They may be playing in a little house,

Image

or have a lot of food in their mouth.

Image

You may even see some pictures of feet,

Image

or of some dogs playing by the street.

Image

The kids may be happy or dying of laughter, and these are pictures they’ll be lucky to capture.

Image

ImageGiving a kid a camera is not something you’ll regret, because you’ll be surprised by the wonderful pictures they get.

  • 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.
