Today’s ‘Positive and Optimistic Sunday’. I’ve no doubt women and men see the world differently. I reckon the cause’s not environmental. So it must be a genetic thing. To do with that extra X chromosome. Perhaps mediated by hormones. Perhaps not. Anyway, put a camera in a woman’s hands and you’ll get totally different types of images than you’ll get from a man in the same spot. And it’s never too early for a woman to start taking pictures. On darling Indigo’s 7th birthday in November 2007, Sweetheart Vivienne and I gave her a digital camera. So on darling Jarrah’s 7th birthday 15 days ago, our gift was preordained. Darling Kate – her mum – said Jazzy’s obsessed with her new camera. It’s red. And so it’s caused her favourite colour to change. From pink. I haven’t seen any of her photographs yet – but judging by the photo top left, she looks the part. Maybe that’s because her mum (who took that photo, and this one ) is a keen – nay, fanatical – and wonderful photographer [2, 3]. I don’t know much about famous woman photographers. But some websites have lists of them [4, 5, 6, 7]. Maybe one day darling Jarrah will be on those lists. If that happens I’ll be delighted to say that Sweetheart Vivienne and I gave her her first camera.
P.S. Darling Pepper, whose 3rd birthday’s today, wants a camera too! No show without Punch .
