Shots of London

I gave Tigger explicit instructions to take LOADS of photos and sent her with my camera.

It's always interesting to see what other people, particularly your children, see in the world. Here are some of her shots.

This one cracked me up. She's taking Rosetta Stone German right now in order to catch up to her peers so that she can take German 2 next year. She showed me this picture and said, "See this? It's called the Rosetta Stone! Isn't that cool?"

I think she only took this because it's written in English. In fact, I'm pretty sure that most of the pictures of signs were just because they were in English. This fact does not thrill me as much as it did her.

Yeah. Got no clue on this one either. We kind of alternate speaking British English and American English at home, so I don't know what was so thrilling about a lift. We use that word sometimes too.

I love her for this one. She hasn't told me about the pictures yet, but I know this one is for me. This is her way of saying that if we lived in London the chance of me getting hit by a car would be much less. Because not only do they HAVE bike lanes, there's a concrete barrier there. Sweet.

There is also an awesome short video of her friend flipping off the camera and then having a mild freak out when she realized that Pamela was holding her mother's camera.

And of all the souvenirs she could have brought me, she brought me only this:Because she is the greatest daughter in the universe.


  1. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder...
    Besides, beaut isn't everything. I've seen many photos, similar to these. They are interesting to the photographer and that's important. Well done, Tigger!

  2. Fabulous pics!! And, mmm, Cadbury's straight from the UK...yum, yum!

  3. Damn again, third this time. I'm losing it.

    I would NEVER cycle in London, or anywhere in England for that matter. There may be cycle lanes, but they were designed by someone who had mashed potato for a brain, they don't join up and force the cyclist to suddenly cut across a junction or be marooned in the middle of a road.

  4. my kid took the best photo of me ever taken. she's five. Amazing and I too love the idea of handing them the camera and seeing what they see.

  5. The few times I've handed my kid a camera, my head or our heads are cut off. Even at 6, he just can't help staring at my chest! Hope Tigger had a safe trip!

  6. Mmmm...Cadbury! I had one today. :) Love them.
    Those are awesome pics!!!

  7. That concrete barrier is a fantastic idea. Wish we had those here.

    Cadbury eggs. Mmmm.

  8. The Cadbury creams. Yes, yes. She is a wonder.

    And no kidding on the dang protected bike lane. Goooooo, England!

  9. I love her photos! and Cadbury eggs are my very favorite Easter Candy!!

  10. HAHA, love Pamela's comment about the rosetta stone... yeah what are the odds they would name the stone after the language software eh?


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
