Globetrotting sm. boy

The small boy is now back from the first of his two epic globetrotting adventures this year - he spent 2 1/2 weeks in New Zealand with Mummy & co. The overall impression - the trip was fantastic. The specifics: Singapore has great (and unique) KitKat bars, there is an amazing amusement park somewhere in New Zealand, and they have Nintendo DS there but no Wiis that he could find. Oh, and he took lots of pictures.

When my brother bought me a new camera for my birthday last fall, James inherited my trusty Canon Elph. I was talking to my parents about it yesterday - while Edward and I both had cameras as kids, we were always limited by the film. Not that we couldn't take as many pictures as we want, it just seemed like a waste to take 15 pictures of the same thing. Not so with digital, and James has no such inhibitions. Of the 200+ photos that he took, there were some supremely blurry ones, some incredibly wonky horizons, and some really brilliant shots. We already knew that he's incredibly artistic and creative, but hadn't seen the fruits of his photographic labors. Here are some of the best:

Great photos!
The digital camera is the best thing around. Remember how much it use to cost to buy and develop prints?
