The new lens that I ordered for my Canon SLR just arrived today. I thought I was excited to begin taking pictures again. But, I wasn’t nearly as excited as Julia was! She took pictures made photographs all afternoon!

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
 Ansel Adams


“Beauty can be seen in all things,
seeing and composing the beauty is what separates
the snapshot from the photograph.”

– Matt Hardy

Julia sees beauty in all things. She sees it in the trees, in the clouds, in the butterfly that flitters by her face. But, mostly she sees beauty in the people around her. These people – her family and friends – are what she desires to capture for all to see.

She is eager to make photographs of the people she loves and, because of that, she captures beauty.

    SuperBoy (6) has an eye for beauty as well….and he loves to take pictures….especially on my Nikon! He will look at something (a photograph, or something to be photographed) and tell me why he likes it….describing and identifying color, texture, light. I’m in AWE of their young eyes that see everything so beautifully!

    You never said what new lens you got??:)

      It’s so much fun to discover our children’s natural talent along with them, isn’t it? She loves telling stories, so it only makes sense that she desires to tell these stories through photography. My only hope is that I will be able to encourage her to develop this love and passion.

    That is so great she has found a creative outlet! My son has been wanting to take pictures lately using his nintendo DS. He’s not quite old enough for a real camera yet considering he’s only 5. It is so great for kids to be creative though! Maybe I should get him one of those kid cameras that can be dropped. Hmm. By the way, such lovely pics!!

    There have been thousands of studies that show people attribute more positive characteristics and generally like and feel better about people that they judge to be attractive. There was even one study recently I saw on the History channel that focused on the mathematical symmetry of people’s facial features (the distance between ones’ eyes, the distance from the eyes to the mouth, etc.) that if one fits the formula – they are deemed pretty.

    The photos are wonderful! I’ve been thinking about upgrading my lens. I just broke down and switched to a digital canon last year, and I’ve been really happy with it…but you have convinced me to start saving up for that lens!

    Think all people have the potential to be physically beautiful. A little makeup goes a long way. Fixing your outside is relatively easy, but working on creating a better person on the inside is a little more difficult, so that is what we should be more conce

    I love Julie’s point of view in life, even if she is still young. Plus, she already knows what she likes. And all her photos are really nice! :)
