sunburned, blistered and tired of working on this.

sunburned, blistered and tired of working on this.

Having to clean out the storage unit in Oklahoma where many things such as furniture, appliances, an electronics have been gathering dust for about three years now. Getting rid of the stuff no longer wanted and repacking the stuff to keep and making sure it’s still in good condition. This probably isn’t even 1/4 of the total stuff. Have already packed up another storage unit full of things that are going to be kept. If one more spec of dust flies in my face or another horde of spiders comes racing towards me, I may just end up abandoning the site. lol.

One more day of this and the kid is going to turn on me.

DAY 20: Imitation

DAY 20: Imitation

DAY 20: Imitation

Children love to imitate their parents and the wider world around them, as they learn vital lessons about the rich tapestry of life…

Whenever we are out and a fire engine races by, on it’s way to a fire or another emergency, you can guarantee that when we get home our little three and a half year old will get his own toy fire engine out from the toy box and recreate the scene he has witnessed outside.

Similarly when Mummy is hoovering or dusting around the home, our Son has to get involved with his own housework in imitation of Mummy. When Mummy is cooking he stands there right by her side insisting that he be allowed to make something for the oven too.

Today’s image demonstrates that imitation is copying or reflecting things others do and is inspired by the way our little boy likes to get out his camera whenever I’m taking photographs. He has watched me setting my camera equipment up so many times since he was born back in 2004, so now he has a toy camera out it comes and he snaps happily away when I’m taking images.

He imitates me in so many ways including always putting his wrist through the camera strap, looks through the viewfinder when getting ready to take an image, makes sure the cover is over the lens after taking images and afterwards carefully reviews the images he has taken. He has even set up a pretend computer in his bedroom to imitate manipulating the images afterwards.

We look forward to seeing his real images, when he gets a proper camera, and I have no doubt I’ll be imitating his photographic skill.

Note: image taken with a Canon 5D mounted on a Manfrotto 055CB Professional Tripod – subject located in very large light tent lit by two Canon 580EX flashes. On the surface this may look like a very simple image, but in fact it was a very complicated set-up and proved frustrating to get exactly as I wanted it. As always I aim for simplicity but achieving such simplicity is far from simple.

This image is part of the The Things Children Play With 30 day challenge gallery.
