Ds asked again for a digital camera of his own.
Of course I am thrilled by this, for while photographer was among his career choices last year, this year has been dominated by his plans to become an astronaut-vet (though he cried when he found out how many years of school that would take).
So the plan is to make his own digital camera the marble jar prize, and I'm online shopping for a product that meets his and my requirements. He wants it to shoot fast, have big buttons, and not be too easy to accidentally delete his pictures. I want it to be easy enough to use that he's encouraged, but not so easy that he'll grow out of it.
Our plan is to shoot photos together, and then compare the world from his perspective and mine.
