Lydia asked to borrow my camera and with heart in mouth I handed over my newly acquired toy. I only give her two pieces of advice;

2 - Get as close as you can to the thing you're photographing (Robert Capa would be proud).
Here are the results (with just a little tweaking on the computer).
Lydia is seven years old.As you can see with the right direction young learners are capable of so much more than we usually give them credit for.
