Chuck Bruton level-deluxe March 31, 2009

A neat story and how you tied it into the curve theme. I started my grandson out at three, he doesn't pick the camera up as often as I would like, but he does notice scenes and always comments that Grandpa would like that.
Good eye #7356051

Mitch Spence level-classic March 31, 2009

Sarah G January 29, 2010

So cool!! One of my daughters could care less about picture taking even though I gave her a camera when she was young (not that young though).

Believe it or not it took her taking my D80 to Japan for her to get interested. She'll be graduating college this year with a double major, Asian Studies/Japanese and Art. In art her emphasis is on photography and print making. Sometimes you just never know when they'll get the "bug."

What a wonderful image!! #8340024
