Give a Child a Camera.

This isn't an extended comment rather a report on a day of fun with some children in a school vacation care group. They were given the chance to visit the local Panboola Wetlands Reserve and make use of cameras. They were encouraged to take interesting and/or unusual photos after I shared some of my photos. Below are selections taken by three boys (9 and 10 years old) who borrowed my spare camera. I thought them worth sharing.

Of course, it was also a chance to add a photo of my own when two children asked me to photograph their toys. When posed, I thought they were a great base for a poster or presentation on friendship. I then added a photo of their hands.
