As viewed by a four-year-old

Today on a walk up one of the steep tracks (chemin as they call them here), I took a photo of the old bench in the fenced lookout spot with proper steel (?) legs made by a family company in Paris, and Bunkeroo expressed her desire to take some photos.

Here are her photos.

This is Bunkeroo’s little sister looking at her big sister with that funny black thing that Mummy uses.

(I was wiping drool.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like this a lot. This morning in the library we read a book about modern art and she was quite impressed with the big abstract works. Or maybe I’m reading too much into this one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She said this was ‘beautiful’ and I had to explain what graffiti is and tagging and why. I would like to start a website called www.butwhy.com where short explanatory videos could be always ready to answer the bl**dy questions!!!!! Today, also at the Library came the crushing realisation that volcanos and lava are not nice. She truly believed they were until this morning.

She’s right in this case, this graffiti is quite beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then she took one of me. Note that baby sister is carefully cropped out of frame. Or maybe she is a total literalist because I said, ‘Take one of me.’

Either way it’s a nice photo of me. There aren’t many people with the patience to take those. I move too much. As does Bunkeroo. We should learn to stay still a little more but it’s hard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There were 4 variations of this composition, which we could call ‘Fence & Leaves’ – this one is blurrier that the others, sorry, but I like the angle she chose.

She also got an extreme close-up of her finger, which amused her no end, but I’ll spare you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And she, too, took a photo of the old bench with the steel (?) legs made by some family company in Paris – Allez Frères rue St. Martin – it looks like if I zoom zoom in. The ‘Go’ brothers? Strange. I’ll have to recheck that next time we go walking.

She also took a close-up of Vivie’s hood with the Winnie the Pooh ears, but that was at my encouragement.

There’s also one of the clouds in the blue sky.

Then I took one of all 3 of us. She offered to do it, but I explained that I have the longest arm. She didn’t ‘but why’ me on that one.

I’m really thankful to have had these two beautiful creatures.
