It's also the first of what we hope will be many more photographs by our oldest granddaughter, now ten.
She and I have started meeting regularly to share a love for photography. She's been clicking away on her own with a new version of the Polaroid instant camera not unlike the one we enjoyed when it came out for its ability to deliver near instant pictures.
On our first day out, we introduced a single zoom-lens 35mm digital camera to the mix, went over the functions and basics of handling a camera and then headed out to start shooting, talking about some basic composition elements as we shared an afternoon. This image was the best one from her camera. The goose was a willing participant, hoping for a handout. But the granddaughter was a serious observer.
What I like about the image is that it captures the goose talking and uses the composition rule of thirds to help draw your eyes to hers. What do you think?
