if you give a kid a camera | part 1

I love letting the younger ones play around with my camera every now and then.  Maybe it’s risky, but so far I think the pros far outweighed the cons in my book….  The most “damage” I’ve ever had is a foggy lens and the greatest success I’ve had is a camera full of some of the most intriguing pictures and the memory of my favorite kiddos giggling and freezing moments that are special to them!

Here’s your first glimpse of bush life through the eyes of our kids at Abaana’s Hope!  I’ll try to give them credit if I can remember who snapped which shot 😉
