Letters In Nature (Autistic Photographs by Noah E Starr)
My kid is a better photographer than I am. I've been jogging in this park for years and never once noticed a letter in nature. We weren't through the fence two minutes when he demanded the camera and wandered off to do his thing. I remember him saying "W" and his little brother Stephen repeat the letter several times, yet thought nothing of it until I downloaded the simm card into my laptop. Wait until you see my upcoming post of Noah's latest points of view... I have to post a couple here just to tease you of the images to come (LOL). ;-)
Mr. Autism has discovered his calling. If Mr. PDD-NOS follows along behind him I am going to have a field day hunting eye candy with the wee people this year.
As far as I am concerned, Noah deserves his own hyper-local series and I am going to give it to him one post at a time. I may turn it into a publishing project. His work would make a beautiful coffee book and would also bring Autism/PDD-NOS issues to light. Even when people don't want to be bothered by my kid sticking a camera in their face he finds something interesting to capture (LOL). He was quite charming about it and readily shared what he was capturing. It made a lot of people smile today.
Can you say, "Talk to the hand?" (ROTFLMAO). The little girl in the playground soon befriended him when she realized all we were doing were taking pictures and filming clips while Stephen ran a mini-marathon around us.
People become curious when you don't talk and just capture the moment. They want to see what you see and she was shocked at his shots. If a kid with speech delays can get another kid excited about photography, imagine who else he might be able to excite if I keep encouraging to express himself through art...
I shall show you more of what he saw a later on tonight. I may be biased but I think my boy is amazing with his curiosity and attention to detail... Here is one more peek at his work until I sort through the 75 shots taken today. Some of them are mad blurry. He got so close to some objects that I have no idea what they are...
I am really beginning to enjoy discovering what he sees when he looks up and zooms down. :-) If you are going to teach a child photography, the magic hour before sunset is the best time to have them discover the value of dramatic lighting and how not using a flash will color your world in the most unexpected ways...
