The little ones in our lives are fascinating people.
They start out barely able to hold up their own head, and within a few months, they’re tearing up the rug.
It may not come as a surprise then that some kids are starting their photography lessons at the wee age of 3….like famed blogger Jason Kottke’s son Ollie!
Jason placed a digital camera in Ollie’s teeny 3 year-old hands to see what would happen.
The most awesomely clever part? He used an Eye-Fi memory card in Ollie’s camera to automatically and wirelessly upload Ollie’s photos from his camera to a Flickr account.
At any moment of the day, family and friends can take a look at his photo stream for an instant window into Ollie’s daily photo adventures.
It’s like seeing right through little Ollie’s eyes, and the photos themselves are adorable (the low-to-the-ground point of view) yet astonishing (portraits of his grandfather).
Connect with your little one through photography, and if you’re worried about your kid dropping the camera, second-hand cameras + kids = a match made in heaven.
