No points please. This isnít my photo.

My 6-year-old grand daughter, Molly, took this photo. I am training her young!!! We often go out on photo shoots together and she has quite a growing album now of her photos.

I took her and the 2 youngest grandsons, Zachary 14 months, and Caleb 26 months, to the zoo this month and Molly had my Sony camera. I didnít take my Canon as I knew I wouldnít have enough hands with the little boys!

We had a great day, and I thought Iíd like to show you one of her photos.

What I like about this photo is that she has ALL the emu in her shot, showing Big Bird standing like a ballet dancer, and with a piece of straw it its mouth.

I have placed a photo in the WS of Molly in action!

Hi Janice,
Well it's to bad because I gave two points to Molly! You should get 10 for teaching her to love photography at a young age. She did a fine job. Maybe you should help her set up her own membership here.

Janice, how nice this is.

When will Molly become a member?

The emu is smiling - it enjoyed Molly.

Thanks a lot for sharing this, Molly. Keep on posting.

Congratulations on the idea, Janice. I checked the workshop. Just great.

My green smile to you, Molly.

Hey Molly!
Your grandmother is very nice on your picture. Is she always smiling like this? ;-)

Take care of her. She is unique, you know.
I am a friend of your grandmother from Montreal, Canada. Give her a kiss for me. Smac!!!


p.s.: Janice, please put the points in her bank ;-)

Hi Molly,

It's good to see you here aswell. Why don't you register yourself; that would be nice. Your photo is very good and especially well composed. You're lucky to have such a cool grandmother who takes you out on photography trips and loans you her old camera. Keep on practising and do show us some more examples. Well done & TFS!

What a shot, I think you beeing smiled at.
I like this photo, after a long day at work you made me laugh.

Hello Molly,

I am delighted to meet you through your grandmother's ws.

This is a wonderful photo that you have taken of an emu.

I would bet that he is as tall as you are, and it looks as though he was very happy to pose for you in this picture.

A great job, and I thank you for sharing it with us.

Perhaps someday, you might join us here and share some more photos. ;-)

Hi Janice...
I love your emus! They are such wonderful birds, and I think Molly has composed a great image here!
The two points are not for you - they are for Molly! Please tell her from me...
Pablo -

Well molly deserves the points I think also, she did an excellent job on the emu, she must have a natural talent, just like her grandmother. Very enjoyable photo! Thanks for letting Molly share it with us.

Hi Janice, This emu appears to be smiling at you. We feel we know you a bit from your photos and great note, but it appears you have a good effect on more than one species. A quality reult. Murray.
