13 Pictures My 5-Year-Old Took With His Camera


Today, I decided I should download the pictures from Eli's camera. There were 561 pictures on there! First, I went through and deleted all pictures that were just of the floor, ceiling, or otherwise completely unrecognizable. That brought it down to 325 pictures. Now, Eli LOVES to take pictures of the TV when one of his shows is on. 100 of the remaining pictures were of the Teletubbies on TV.

Somewhere in there, I decided this would make a great Thursday Thirteen. It was really difficult to narrow down the pictures. In fact I could easily do this as a weekly feature, but I'll just start with this.

1. Daddy always looks so excited to have his picture taken.


2. Close-ups are Eli's specialty. This is a great picture he took of the Valentine's cake we made on Tuesday.


3. Eli takes a picture of every single thing he watches on TV. I'm always amazed at how well they turn out. Here is a very nice shot of Blue.



4. Most of the shots Eli takes of me are at his eye level, which would be my ass. When he tilts the camera upwards, he gets nice shots of my boobs. Here's a rare picture he took of my face.



5. Our cat, Coconut, is one of Eli's favorite models. Unfortunately, he ususally runs off when he sees Eli coming at him with a camera.



6. Here is one of Eli's more common shots - his lovely feet.


7. Eli loves to snap pictures of his little sister. Here is one of her that actually looks great!


8. But most of them look more like this.



9. Eli feels the need to have photographic evidence of every single toy we have in our home. This is the Little People Farm.


10. And this is the infamous sound tube that Eli used to break my crystal angel.


11. Since Eli took more than 100 pictures of the Teletubbies, I thought I should at least post one. For those of you who don't know, this scary-ass creature is Tinky Winky. *shiver*


12. This is how Eli looks when he takes a picture of himself and actually manages to capture his face!

13. This is what Eli looks like when Georgia grabs his camera and starts taking pictures.

What a cool idea!!! I'm wondering now, just what kinda pictures my little ones could take [no, I won't do it tho ---my 'little ones' are two cats...my kids are nearing middle age already. LOL]

I have the Thursday 13 of the Chinese New Year this week. Hope to see you there for a visit.

He did a great job! I love seeing the pictures that my kids take as well - the goofy usually outnumber the 'good' ones, but they're learning! :)

What a fun TT =)

I just didn't have the energy for a T13 today... how you do it, I don't know... must be that espresso machine!
Thanks for the image of the "sound tube" ... NOW I know what you're talking about.
Picture #7 (of Georgia) is really good! For his age, these really are amazing. I do love his pouty/plotting your demise look in #13, although, in the camera angle - since it's taken with a computer screen in the foreground, it looks more like MOMMY took that picture than Georgia did...
:)
