A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW
Today we want to explain you a very fun experience for family trips. The main ingredients are one camera, two little girls and one trip abroad. The day before leaving, give a camera to your children. And explain them that they have complete freedom to use it as they want.
There is just one condition for the parents: don’t look at the pictures until you are back home. You will have a completely different vision of city you have visited. And it will make you think that your adult eyes only see a little part of the world.
It was looking at me…
We have experienced it in a family holidays to Venice. Due to professional reasons it was a half tourism, half working trip. So we thought about something different to try to make it more interesting for our daughters. A new camera before leaving home was the perfect present for them. An extra motivation and a way to have fun while paying attention to a new and completely different city.
Look, that house is painted like the neighbor’s flowers!
Which was the result? A great collection of photos of some objects and places that will surprise you. The main difference is that all the pictures are taken from a lower height.
They see things that you did not even realize that exist. Small details, objects and a personal city vision caught from a very different point of view. Have you ever seen a gondolier from above?
And the most fun are the comments when they explain you the content of the photographs. And especially, when they ask if you remember that thing or the other. Our answer is always “yes, of course!”. But then, we look at each other thinking that we missed most of the things they saw…!
What was the best activity of the holidays? No doubt! Playing around with a kitten!
She was sooooo beautiful!
I photographed this pasta because it tasted yummy!
The Grand Canal seen from between Rialto bridge balustrades! A new point of view!
I can see a hamster silhouette on that wall!
I see faces…
Oh, poor teddy bear!
And promised, I saw no one of this images at Venezia… I have to come back again!
