It was her choice to go, since she'd spent her entire Saturday following us around to Connor's Cub Scout Pushmobile race and then his baseball practice and then working on a school project until bedtime. I thought she needed a break to just do something she wanted to do.
When we got there, I told her, just go wherever you want, I'll follow. Stop in and look at anything you see that interests you and don't be afraid to ask the artists questions about their work. So she did. She really gravitated toward the photography, especially the nature photographs. She looked so carefully and intently. She really knew what she liked and what worked in each piece. She also liked the folk art a lot. If I was one of the artists that she stopped in at, I would have been so flattered by her attention to the details. It was a happy moment.
She's a very promising photographer herself. Here's one of her photos that she took with her little Kodak digital last month. I thought it was quite nice, for a 10 year old.
