This week the Camdens decided to take a little field trip down to Avery Island, also known as the place where Tabasco is made. (By the way - do note they are a ColdFusion site!) While there, we did the factory tour, which is really just a long commercial, but pretty darn interesting none the less. I had no idea they used old whiskey barrels to help prepare the peppers.
Anyway, on the island itself (more information here) you can visit a nice little natural park named Jungle Gardens. It's part 'drive through' part 'walk through' botanical gardens. My eldest son, who got a digital camera for Christmas this year took quite a few pictures.
I helped him offload his pictures to iPhoto yesterday, and in doing so discovered that he took some freaking amazing pictures. I don't know if I have a prodigy on my hands here but I was pretty darn impressed. Here are two shots I thought were particularly nice.
Should I be worried my kid can take better pictures than I can? Of course, his camera has a higher megapixel rating than mine, so, um, yeah, that's my excuse!
He's got a good eye. Encourage him to keep it up. And maybe if he's still interested in photography, maybe a photo class during the summer?
I really like the shot of what looks to be a stone bridge over water.
