As Pablo Picasso said: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once one grows up.” And Timothy Jones is not gonna let Stan, his 19-month-old son, waste those talents. So from an early age Tim is giving his son all the tools he needs to kindle his creativity.
“He has a few of my old crappy point-and-shoot film cameras in his toy box to play with, but today I gave him my Canon G12,” Tim told Bored Panda. “To be honest it’s a pile of shit and it doesn’t get used at all. It was probably a tip top camera back in the day but by today’s standards it’s not the best.“
“He wandered round the house and garden snapping away saying ‘cheese’ at everything. He even managed to switch the settings to ‘sepia’ at one point. I’m guessing he was feeling a bit pretentious and wanted to change the style of his shots. He looks through the viewfinder as well rather than use the LCD screen on the back.“
“After he had finished and started to press all the buttons to see what they did I whacked the memory card in the MacBook and had a look at the pics. He did pretty well!“
