Florida Day 7: Shooting photos with Kyle

Later in the afternoon, we went back to the hotel to rest a bit. Katra and Ian took a nap while Kyle and I went for a walk around the resort to take pictures. Kyle has his own camera now, so he was shooting the whole time along with me (he actually took more pictures than I did, which is no small feat). I have put some of his photos below alongside mine for comparison. Aside from holding the camera level and keeping fingerprints off the lens, I think he’s getting pretty good!

One of the many horse head post caps scattered around the property. Kyle loved these, and took several photos of each one we passed. Right now he's standing next to me saying, "Remember that? It's the horsie!"

For the above photo I crouched down to frame the photo nicely. Kyle copied my every move, crouching down to get the same shot. My little photographer.

This was my favorite part of the whole trip. Kyle really seems to enjoy using his camera. He copies what I do for some pictures, but he really does his own thing on most of them. He got some really interesting and unique photos on the trip, and I’ll be posting more of them after I have a chance to sort through them (he took almost 2000 photos on our vacation).
