A Camera in the Hands of a 5 Year Old

My eldest has discovered the camera recently which is really funny because at the same time he's snapping these my two gorgeous Atlanta friends had just sent me samples of their girls' photography efforts. Here are a few of his shots. These are my favourites from the 75 odd that we got off the camera yesterday. It's really interesting to see what he chooses to shoot. We will never forget this house as we have shots of every corner; under the bed, the ceiling, lights, the dishwasher and the laundry pile on the sofa! These are from top, some of the books on the boys' bookshelf, the heater vent and the wheely bee.

IKEA PS Ellan Chair

I absolutely love chairs and not only from the practical perspective. I even built a couple when I was at art school. One of which was made out of oregon hard wood and needs two people to lift it - not very practical. I was quite amused by this Ikea PS Ellan chair I found browsing the most recent Ikea catalogue. It's almost a rocking chair - which I also love. Imagine being able to legitimately rock back on your chair after a big meal. It turns out this chair is assembled without any tools - how cool is that! Now if only Ikea would open a store in Canberra.
