Now its Ender’s turn. His pictures are a bit different. They were all taken while we were on our Delhi trip, but many of them were taken from the car window while we were on the 3 hour trip to and from Agra, where the Taj Mahal is located. Here’s what he has to offer:
The last one requires a little background information. As we walked around India Gateway in Delhi, these three boys became fascinated with Ender. At first they were just curious at this strange and foreign little kid, but then they noticed the digital camera in his hand. Each time he snapped a picture, they were leaning over his shoulder to see it display on the back. He didn’t realize why there were following him and hanging over him, and began to get annoyed, until we explained to him why they were doing it. He offered to take their picture, and they enthusiastically agreed. He snapped this fabulous picture of them, and they were absolutely thrilled to see themselves in the display. It was a really neat moment for all of us.
I will try to hand off the camera to the kids much more than I do. They don’t have any of the hang-ups I do about photographing people and things. They just take the camera and go with it. It is that kind of attitude that has given us some of the most memorable photographs in history.
Well Stacy and Scott, I think you got yourselves a couple of camera buffs! Addie chose the beautiful still-life objects and of course, animals and flowers while Ender’s points of interest were very different and unique. Pictures that could easily be put in a book about “Life in India”.Great pics! kids. And they are all so straight! Keep going kids, you’re doing a great job and I love viewing your snapshots.
I can’t imagine what the oxen might have been pulling on that overloaded cart. Perhaps it was all this persons’ worldly properties and his dwelling too! Being as out-spoken as I am, I would have asked!
It seems to me that on any day and every day it’s all about the children. Addie and Ender have seen and experienced things that other children can only imagine and this makes me very happy. “Happy St. Nick Day” kids. (or whatever it is called)
That sure is an interesting chain link fence! Nice one, Ender! Very interesting to see pics the kids take – not like when we were kids and film was too expensive to play with. Hooray for digital cameras!
