Children Photographers

The children got their cameras on Saturday morning. I gave about an hour of introduction and an hour instruction and then we met again in the afternoon. I set up the viewer and I browsed through the pictures, one at a time, giving them feedback on the pictures. I was simply amazed how good the shots were already. Several of the kids have a natural eye for beauty and composition.

I asked the kids to ‘lock’ these pics on their cards and starting tomorrow, I’ll be copying them to my laptop and will try to upload a few pictures. Some of the shots are so good, I really think I could sell them to help fundraise for the kids…. or maybe put together a booklet of their work. We’ll see.

The only bad news is that the cameras are breaking… is this because the kids are not being careful? I don’t know. It could just be that the cameras are a little touchy. But please pray that we don’t lose anymore… it’s only Sunday and we’re down 3 cameras. Also, the batteries are a problem. I thought the batteries that came with the cameras were rechargeable but they are not… so it doesn’t look like I’ll have enough batteries to run the project in Zambia. I’m pretty disappointed about that.

We are healthy and really, no complaints at all. Everyone is kind… the children are lovely and enthusiastic. While we are at the Children of Zion Village, it’s like being in a lovely cocoon on their compound.

  1. Hello! I can hardly believe you are really in Africa after seeing you in the grocery store just the other day. I am glad to hear that things are going well, except for some problems with the cameras. I can’t wait to see some of the pictures. Blessings,
