“With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy.”

Well, I'm not really a model mom. But Alex is learning photography and today asked me if I'd sit for her. So I did and she took this picture of me with Piper the Cat. I think she did an excellent job. Even now I sometimes get things off center and out of focus.
Alex is serious about learning photography. Yesterday she went to the library and came home with a book on the subject. She has a 35mm camera her grandmother gave her but asked me today if I'd give her my digital when I get a new one. She likes being able to see the photographs right away. We told her she could use it with supervision. She is, after all, only eight.
But she's an eight-year-old with an interest, and as interests go photography is a good one that can last a lifetime.
Besides, it's wonderful, being able to freeze those special moments forever in a shot. Like this one - me and my lovely little Alex, the budding photographer.
