On Saturday Eldest idly picked up my camera.
We were in the garden and after a morning of drizzle and grey skies, the sun had now appeared and the garden seemed to shake itself from it's stupor and glow in the light.
I watched as he wandered around taking photos of the flowers.
Then his picture taken, he would carelessly amble across the lawn, yawn and look around indifferently then take up another typical teenage stance - casual yet cool, would take another picture. This continued for quite some time. Then, almost in an off hand way, he returned my camera and wandered off to the house to find something to eat.
He took nearly 70 photos..... I only had to discard three - the rest are amazing -
think I must get him to take more - don't you?
He spent probably nearly 3/4 hour in silence almost immersing himself in the plants and the camera - job done :)
