My photographic abilities have been surpassed...

... by a 3 year old. This weekend, my family went up to the cabin for a weekend of unplugging and having some fun. We got there after dark on Friday night. Not having any TV, cell phone service, or radio always takes a little getting used to, so Maddy was getting pretty stir crazy almost immediately. I was doing my usual thing of taking a lot of pictures when....

[MADDY] What are you doing Daddy?
[DADDY] Taking pictures..
[MADDY] Can I take a picture?
[DADDY] Sure, what do you want to take a picture of? (scared of letting his 5d and brand new Canon 1.4 into the hands of a 3 year old)
[MADDY] Woofie (scurries to get her favorite stuffed animal and sets him up on the floor)

Now, she had a bit of help with the settings (SS - 1/80, f/1.4, ISO 1600), but she pointed and she pressed the button, so this is her photo. She nailed the focus and even used the rule of 3rd's! Without further ado, I give you Woofie..

After this, we continued by taking pictures of the couch, sink, chair, carpet and other random things, but this one I thought was blog post worthy and frame worthy (for her room).
