While I posted to Facebook about Elliott’s picture taking over a month ago, tonight as he snapped a quick shot of our neighbor, I revisited his photos. I am so glad I did. He has an interest in capturing things around him. He sees things so differently than Mike or
I. And while I have to delete so many blurry or glaring bright photos, he manages to sneak some really good ones in too. They all capture a little bit of our days, things I would never think to photograph. The angle is different from his short five-year-old height. What subject matter he finds interesting is so varied. And his photos of himself are hilarious, even all the penis pictures I keep finding.
So I had to share a few tonight, not cropped or edited, just leaving them the way Elliott took them. But I chose not to include the horrid Mommy and Daddy ones he always manages to get. The half closed eyes, the haggard, sleep deprived looks during diaper changes. I keep them, but I will never share them.
And not the penis pictures. Good for a laugh, but not for sharing!

|A favorite pose|
|Street sweeper... one of many Lego pictures|
|Oliver (Elliott's pics of Oliver are my favorite find on the camera)|
|Dress up + use of the timer feature = weird picture|
|Definitely not a moment I would have chosen for a photo, but part of the day is trying to get Mommy out of bed|
|Oliver is still trying|
|Love that little boy grin!|
|Another favorite of his... funny faces, straight on|
