Photo-A-Day #1961

This morning and early afternoon I took Eva over to the World War I Memorial Park. I had Eva take a disposable camera with her. We had one hanging around and she loves to take pictures. I think that using the disposable camera has helped Eva improve her photography skills. She is now looking at what she wants to shoot before shoots it. Once the disposable was finished she moved on to my point and shoot digital camera, the Canon SD800is.

At the park there are Emus now but Eva was not to thrilled with them. We checked out the emus and the little goats and the ducks. We then walked on up the hill to the other animals like the donkeys, pigs and deer. We would walk around and Eva would ask the animals to stand still so she could take their pictures. She has a little to learn about photographing animals but she will, she’s got some interest in it and that is fun. I love taking her with me on little photo outings and the World War I Memorial Park is a fun place to do that because once she gets bored with taking photos there are so many other things for her to do like slides.

Eva loved the park today. She played on all the slides and the other things. she even went down the huge slide all on her own once, and the second time with me. She went down much faster when I was sliding because I laid back and well, I’m heavier and have much more momentum. She loved the speed. We then left the park and went to breakfast. Well, we were going to do lunch but the place we went only serves breakfast on Saturdays, but that is okay because Eva got a pancake and bacon and I got the Barnyard omelet (All meats in one omelet plus potatoes, I could have done with out those, I’ll know for next time).

Eva and I had a great day today and then came home and watched a movie with Allison. We showed Allison all the photos that we took today. Here is the Flickr Album. I’ve marked all the ones that Eva shot, too. Here are a few.

      Celina,

      I love taking her out to photograph, she enjoys it too. She gets bored quickly though so it was good that there was a playground.
