Nature Fun for Kids: Take a Photo Walk

Our new favorite nature outing is to take a walk together with our cameras.  Provide a child with a camera, and he’ll see the world in a different way.  Every day while in Yosemite National Park last week, my son begged us to take him outside to photograph the flowers.  Obviously, Yosemite naturally calls to be photographed, but we have just as much fun walking around our home taking photo walks around our home in the Bay Area.

My 5-year-old, taking photos in Yosemite, with his VTech Kidizoom Camera

A few photos he took in Yosemite with his camera…  this one is the forest on the path to the Nature Center at Happy Isles.

And one of many photos my son took of flowers in Yosemite…

Of course, how could he resist a photo of Half Dome?  Can you spot it?

And, inevitably,  a photo of me!  On Sentinel Dome…
