"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
As Síle will be too modest to mention it, I'm going to do. Síle's daughter got 2nd place in this promotion/competition from the Fuji shop in Bray, it was a lovely shot and at the risk of being biased, should really have gotten first place. Well done Abbie! And also well done Fuji Bray for sponsoring this initiative.
What a great story. Smart move on the part of Fuji and the school. The thought processes involved in describing the subject, the means by which it should be expressed and the analysis needed to determne success or what is best are wonderfull lessons.
I am with Fintan - Buy that girl a film camera and then simple darkroom skills.
Our youngest daughter used to sit and watch me print before she started kindergarten. In 5th grade she took an old enlarger of mine and set up a darkroom for her class. While attending UCSC she paid her way making portraits of babies and children, and occasionally printing for a major portrait photographer in Sacramento.
You can not start them too young, especially once they show an interest!

Thank you all for the kind words, which I have passed on to a now brightly beaming Abbie. She says to say a big thank you to everyone from her too. Needless to say she was thrilled to come in second, and I was one very proud Mum
Yes, I totally agree she needs a film camera.. and I willingly obliged by passing on my Richoflex to her when she first showed interest in my Autocord.. She loved the way the "old camera" works. And I have an old Fujica 35mm that I willingly hand over too.. I think she might be hooked
Jim, that was a lovely story about your daughter thank you for sharing it.
If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?
