Simple Sunday – Through the Lens of a Child’s Camera

Every month or two I transfer the photos from Cody and Carter’s camera onto the computer.  Lately Carter has taken a great interest in photography and actually captures some pretty nice images and moments of our lives.  I thought I would share.  Perhaps this will become a “thing” I will do from time to time.  Why not?

Self Portraits:

Still Life:

Crazy Pillow Collage

Cody and Carter each spend $10 of their own money that they made at their lemonade stand this summer on these cute huggable pillows.  On the left is Mr. Cuddles.  On the right, Owl.

Banks Buttons and Dog Collars

The round globe objects are ceramic money banks made by Cody and Carter’s Grandma.  The button collection is one I used to play with when I was a child.  We have added to it and occasionally the boys like dumping it out and sorting buttons.  In the middle are Rosy and Dexter’s collars.

Rocks in a backpack of course

What’s in the bottom of your backpack?  Well, now you all know what is at the bottom of Carter’s.

Carter – what a backseat photographer you are!


Show me your mean foot, papa.  POW!

Big, crazy CHEESE!!

    i love the selfies

  2. Wow! What great photos for a kid! I love that kids think to take pictures of things that I would never think of! Iris takes pictures of all of her toys. I ran across some that she took when she was about 4. Some of the toys are long gone but it was nice seeing them. It brought back good memories!

      It was pretty interesting to see what they found worthy of photographing when they were younger – like your Iris, there were lots of toy pictures. Such fun!

  3. Hi Shoes — these photos are great! So glad you saved some and even categorized them. 🙂 The self-portraits made me laugh out loud. I gave my son a digital camera for his birthday, it’s real, but doesn’t really take pictures, more like a toy — anyway, it has this tiny screen and still he is fascinated by what he can capture. One night last year I went into his room to see what he and my daughter were laughing at. Turns out they were taking photos of the eyes of their toys! So silly, but so fun, and to see their little minds at work, the world as they saw it (a lot of knees and feet) was so interesting. Great job, C&C!

    I love the photos the kids take. Honestly sometimes my grandson’s pictures (he’s five) are better than mine!

      Ha! I know what you mean about your grandson’s pictures being better than yours, I am in the same boat with some of the great snapshots the boys take. 🙂
