a different point of view

When I posted last about past pumpkin patches I was reminded of a certain incident that occurred at one of the visits.  It happened when we went to the Elgin pumpkin patch in 2007 when Rilyn was three and received a disposable camera.   It was definitely a ‘blog worthy’ moment then, but I didn’t have the ‘encouragement’ that I do now to post this.  (You know who you are! )

At the Elgin patch there are plenty of farm animals to pet and look at.  Rilyn, having received this camera, was eager to take pictures of many of the animals by herself.   When we got home, I sent the camera in to get developed so Rilyn could put together a little photo album of her trip to the pumpkin patch.  Well….a couple days later when I picked up the developed pictures, I was very glad that I went through them before I let Rilyn see her photography skills.  The first picture in the stack definitely caught my eye!  You must click here to see due to the graphic nature.  (Keep in mind, a three year old is only a certain height and so when she thinks she is taking a picture of a horse, well, it is a horse, but just not the face…get my drift?)

*If Rilyn ever becomes a famous photographer, she will kill me for this!  😉
