I am beginning to look forward to "Little Perspective Friday's". Ella is enjoying taking pictures (even if it is a just a phase in her ever evolving childhood) and it is so cool when after a few days, I load the pictures on the computer and get to look at them. It just makes me smile. I cant get her to focus properly, but its her perspective that matters.
Ella and I went with my Mom to the Minneapolis Institute of Art the other day. They were having an exhibit on Presidential items called "Hail to the Chief". My Mom is a wicked history buff. I knew I would have to keep Ella occupied and quiet, so I brought my p&s camera for her to play with. Everyone who walked through thought she looked so cute holding the camera and taking pictures.
This painting of George Washington was beautiful. It of course was larger than life but the colors were so rich and beautiful.
Once we got to this point, which isn't very hard because it was just a one room exhibit, one of the security guards came over and told me that the huge flag of the presidential seal was not to be photographed because it belonged to an outside collection. It made me wonder how they can control that if they allow cameras inside the museum? In any case, she had already taken pictures of it so we said ok and moved on to something else.
Its great. I have a whole little library of Ella's pictures now for weeks to come!
