    I have to brag a bit :redface:

    3 weeks ago I was contacted by Olympus Europe. They had seen some of my daughter Lisas pictures on flickr and asked if they could put them on their facebook page as their "spot on a photographer".
    Pretty cool for a 8 year old and of course she's is bursting with pride (me too:smile:)

    This is their site: link

    So cool!
    My son is 9 months only. I guess I have to wait a bit to give him a camera..

    Very cool. My Dad put a canon canononnet (sp?) in my hand when I was 6. I have been lugging cameras around for 50+ years now. Best gift of my life. I in turn did the same thing to my children and they have also developed a life long passion.

    Congratulations! I am jealous (in a good way!) not because Olympus contacted you and Lisa (which is fantastic by the way) but because you and your daughter have something that you enjoy doing together and that is priceless. I am yet to find an activity that would allow me to connect the same way with my 7 year old son...
