Storytelling Sunday: "It's easy, mom!"

Clara: "Can I have your old camera mom?"
Me: "Yes you can, once you learn how to use it."
Clara: "I know how to use it mom.  It's easy. See?"
Yes, my love, I do.

Kids know everything, don't they? Lovely photo.

helena said...

love the photo and dialogue format - I guess 'use it' has a range of meanings!!

Ladkyis said...

She's right, she just hasn't learnt all the tricks to taking excellent pictures yet. That'll be next week

The thing with kids is that they aren't afraid to experiment and we all learn best by actually 'doing' rather than just reading about things. So 'bravo!' Clara, and let's see some of her photos here very soon!

Kids always pick things up so quickly don't they :)

scrappyjacky said...

I really must agree with Ruth!!!!!

Miriam said...

It never ceases to amaze me just how much they know!!
Lovely picture of your daughter Rinda.

Sian said...

What a beautiful face - she looks radiant! and what a lovely example of a short short story with a memory to hang onto. I love it.

Chipper said...

Of course she knows how to use it ... she knows everything! LOL I have two teenage boys just getting like this.

Cheri said...

This is in the same vein as my post today. My kids can pick up any piece of technology and immediately start using it. They seem to intuitively know what each button is for and they aren't afraid to experiment. Me, I want a manual with pictures!

Well done Clara a good self portrait

Julie J said...

unfortunately when my daughter got hold of my camera saying she knew how to use it, she wiped the memory card and lost the photos from her hallowe'en party and a family trip to the zoo.

Missus Wookie said...

So fun to see the next generation of photographers starting to learn all the tricks - hope she has fun with your old camera and shares the photos with you.

Irene said...

What a great smile. She took a beautiful picture.

Ginger said...

That really is a lovely self portrait!

favouriteworkofart said...

love it!

Mel said...

The kids I teach always know how to use the computers and tech better than me!

Miss Smith said...

Love the way you've told the story. Fantastic!

Melissa said...

What a cute conversation to record!

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

They seem to be born knowing! Lovely self portrait :o)

Lizzie said...

So, will she let you teach her anything about that camera? I guess she'll figure it out okay.
Love her smile in that photo, even with the big "flash" reflection. She's gorgeous, Rinda!

Beverly said...

smart, young lady :) and beautiful!

Karen said...

It's good to see your lovely daughter, and I'm sure she'll have it all figured out in no time.

laurie said...

the photo, the few words - they say volumes about your relationship with your daughter and her growing independence. she is glowing with pride and confidence.

furrypig said...

great photo and I loved the short story!

Jimjams said...

LOL - teenagers DO know everything except ... how much there is to know!
