Through a child's eyes
The wonder of it all
Atlanta, GA, January 2008 [Click to embiggen]
Sometimes, I wish I could hear what our kids are thinking as they're experiencing something extraordinary. I wish I could bottle up that knowledge and use it again in future, as if it could somehow help me be a better parent.
That isn't possible, of course. But it didn't stop me from musing over my daughter's shoulder as she took in this beyond-lifesize vista at the Georgia Aquarium (wiki).
Your turn: Wonders of childhood. Please discuss.
One more thing: As the dateline on the photo suggests, we're back from vacation. We were in Florida for a bit, and stopped in Atlanta on the way home for a quick trip to the aquarium. Since I don't pre-announce vacations on this blog - rob my house, please? - I now have a pretty huge backlog of photos and experiences from the trip. More in the weeks to come.
Make that two more things: I've got a Facebook page (click here to see my profile.) I've posted an initial batch of aquarium pics to a photo album imaginatively titled "Georgia Aquarium" (click here to see it.) I'll post more albums in the days to come if you want to see what I brought home from vacation. The photographer in me despises Facebook because it strips photos down to low-resolution snapshots. But it's a decent medium for quickly sharing batches of pictures.
