Grandson, Theo, was requesting a monopoly game, a game I dislike. He settled for a “camera assignment.” I asked him to choose from three colors, blue, red and yellow and go outside and take pictures of (he chose red), red items on his short street.
He is nine years old and did very well. I always learn something from my Grandson’s. He had read a library book called Zoom, in which a photo is reversed from close up to far away, showing for example a roosters comb, then the rooster, then the barn where the rooster lived, people looking in the barn, the magazine the picture of the barn etc. was on, a person reading the magazine, the chair he was sitting in and so on. Hmmm. Intriguing and challenging.
which is part of his:
Later in the day we visited my sister’s grandson, Jeff and great grandson, CJ.
And, I forgot my camera and had to steal this photo from facebook.
We did manage games after dinner. We settled on Bananagrams and Quiddler instead, both fast moving and can reasonably be played by all ages. But, now I know I have to try a “zoom” assignment.
