It's Insta-Friday cell phone photo time. I have but one photo of mine to share. Two of our nieces were over last Friday night. We went to play basketball and tennis at a local park. My daughter and my younger niece were playing with the dog, when Jolene managed to escape her leash and take off into the street. Thankfully, she sat down when my husband yelled "Stop!" Do you see the guilty look in her eyes? Naughty.
For the rest of my Insta-Friday photos, I asked my kids to take some pictures with my cell phone. I find that children have a very different perspective on the world, and often they take cool and unusual photos.
I gave the phone to my son first.
He started with photos of Jolene. Many of them.
He found this cool bug outside the front door. Time to wash the window!
He photographed the trees around the pond behind our house.
And the shed.
The cool skull on his beloved scooter.
Finally, a self-portrait. He is a great kid, so compassionate and thoughtful.
Then, I turned the phone over to my little gal. She wasn't much in the mood, but she snapped a few shots...Jolene first, of course.
Some plastic golf clubs.
Her final photo: the back deck through the screen door. I like the perspective on this one.
Thankfully, my children live comfortable lives in a relatively safe and peaceful country. Their perspectives on the world are different from those of the millions of children throughout the world who lack basic necessities.
With World Food Day coming up on October 16, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is sharing a look at the life of Molly, a child who lives in the Mathare slum of Nairobi, Kenya, one of the poorest places in the world.
WFP gave Molly a small video camera to film her life. Her video tells the story of hunger and the power of school meals from Molly’s perspective. Molly is just one of the nearly 26 million children around the world who receive a WFP meal at school every day.
How can you help? Watch a short video about Molly and then take a very short quiz. Every time someone completes the quiz, a meal is donated to a child through an anonymous WFP sponsor.
Watch the video, do the quiz and a child like Molly will receive a school meal!
