Cross-Country

My son will sometimes pretend he’s The Flash, or Sonic the Hedgehog. He loves to run.

So, when I learned that our school district was hosting an Elementary Cross-Country Series, I knew I had to sign him up.

Unfortunately, we had to miss the first meet of the three-meet series because that was the day Connor had his annual checkup and flu shot — firstly, I couldn’t justify both coming in late to work for his appointment and leaving early for his cross-country meet; and secondly, he was hobbling around all day on his flu shot leg, so having his first-ever race on a bum leg would not have been a good experience.

I brought my “good” camera with me to capture Connor’s first-ever actual race, the second meet of the series.

Downtown Photo Walk: December 2016

My¬†five-year-old son’s film camera is a no-name focus-free 35mm camera that my husband got for free years ago. At first it was a toy… but, as it turns out, this little camera takes contrasty, vignetted photos that I really love. So, I’m never hesitant to load up his camera when he asks, because I know he’ll get bored with photographing at some point, and I’ll get to shoot the rest of the roll.

I took the generic blue 35mm on a photo walk downtown back in December. These were the results.
