Last week Princess Nagger’s class went to the Baltimore Zoo on a field trip.  It was a first for PN, and she was excited as she waited for her morning bus:

I was tempted to send my point-and-shoot camera along, but I was worried it would be lost on the trip, and she insisted she’d much rather bring her Fisher Price digital camera instead.  The little photographer was ready for her trip:

She almost did lose her camera, as she forgot it in the restroom after they had lunch at the zoo.  When they went back to look for it, it was gone.  Luckily one of her classmates noticed that someone had tossed it in the trash.  Who throws a camera in the trash instead of turning it in to Lost and Found?  Ah well, at least she recovered it and happily snapped pictures of the animals.  The following pictures are the ones she took herself with her camera.

The bus trip to the zoo:

Her first grade teacher eating lunch:

And now, the animals:




African Penguins:


Another Giraffe:


She tried to take a picture of a polar bear, but a bird flew in the center of the shot – which I thought was pretty cool:

It might be time to get this little budding photographer a real camera.

  1. Great pics, PN! What a fun trip that must have been. My oldest had that camera for a while, and now she has a basic Kodak EasyShare that she loves. 🙂

  2. We got Baby Girl a real camera for Christmas. It is just a small point and shoot digital camera. I think it takes better pictures than my camera and it was under $100. I thought it was a pretty great gift. But I am always worried about her losing it.

    I didn’t know they had penguins in Africa.

  3. She took some great photos! I’m so glad she found her camera. I can’t believe someone threw it in the trash. What’s up with that? They could’ve at least left it where they found it.

  4. She is so cute!!!

    And I love when I let my Little One use our camera (the cheap one of course). His perspective on things is so different than ours.

    She did a good job … I suspect the blurriness is either my eyes or the quality of the camera perhaps.

    But sounds like you made the right choice in not letting her take a good camera after the bathroom incident!!!! But there are a lot of pretty cheap point and shoot cameras out there now that moving up might not be a bad idea.

  5. Why would someone throw a camera in the trash? That is so bizarre, but I’m glad she found it and was able to take took some really great photos.

  7. Well, I think PN did a great job of capturing the essence of the zoo! That girl defintely needs a real camera…maybe in 2 or 3 years.

    I agree, the photo of the bird in front of the polar bear is pretty cool.

  8. i think kids can take some interesting photos. my 4 year old has a camera of her own, too.

  9. Awww! The little pink camera!
    My four year old son loves to take pics…I should get him his own camera. It is cool to see through their eyes for a change. (=

  12. LOL, you do know the “bird” is a decal put on the glass to stop real birds from flying into it, don’t you? My university had those in certain spots.

    Regardless, those are some pretty good pictures for a Fisher Price camera. I think a real camera is in order 🙂 My almost 4yr LOVES taking pictures with my camera…I think she might get her own soon.

    Thanks for linking up to my WW post

  13. She did a great job with her camera, chip off the old block 🙂 I love looking at photos from a childs’ perspective. Looks like a fun trip.

  14. She’s too cute! Before you know it she’ll be working for National Geographic! *wink* We have that camera and it doesn’t take the greatest shots, but she got some great ones! Glad she didn’t lose it and you were able to share her photos!

  15. Tell her I said she took some great pics! I know what you mean. My son has a camera like that too and he can take some pics!! Happy WW stop by if you can!!

  16. Her photos turned out really well! Yup, give her your point-and-shoot… and then you’ll have an excuse to get a new one for yourself (a DSLR if you don’t have one yet).

    That’s what we’ve promised Z when I get my new camera!
