Self Portrait Challenge - Skill {no secret}

This month's Self Portrait Challenge theme is Skill.

For this first week, my offering regarding one of my skills is no secret.

But you might be surprised, as I was, that the taker of this photograph was, in fact, not myself with a tripod or some other concocted method - it was my 8 year old daughter. I have seen some nice skills developing in her lately, and it excites me to see what develops further with her as the years go by.

so cool - I love to hand the camera over to my kids (with the neck strap firmly in place of course) ...but just to see the world through their eyes...

Wow, that is a lovely shot. Kids always have such a different angle to look at the world. It is great to let them take a try with the camera.
