Following the success of last summer’s photo blogging competition ‘Capture the Colour’, Travel Supermarket teamed up with Venture Photography to launch Kids Capture the Colour, an exciting challenge for children aged 15 or under to get creative and photograph the world around them. Our little ones can be so creative, why should such a fun opportunity be restricted to grown-ups? We were delighted to be chosen as one of 100 bloggers to receive a camera from Travel Supermarket.
Kevin is a keen photographer, and recently, Gemma and Jacob have started asking to take pictures with Daddy’s camera too. I love seeing what they choose to take photos of, and how they talk about them afterwards – they have captured some memories that are very special to them.
For this competition, the children have been asked to capture the colours of red, blue, green, yellow and white while on their summer holidays.
Gemma (age 7) took this photo of a snowy owl during a day out at a local country park. I love how she has captured the ‘movement’ of the owl, and the beautiful markings. Gemma chose this for her white photo as she thought that a ‘snowy’ owl would suit the ‘white’ brief.
Taken on our summer holiday to the beach – Gemma came up with the great idea of taking a photo of her feet on the yellow sand while she paddled in the sea.
Gemma took this photo herself while looking out across the sea – she said she liked the tower in the background, and wanted to take a photo to remember it.
Buckets in the garden. Gemma says she liked how green the grass was, and she thought it was funny because the buckets shouldn’t have been in the grass – they should be in the sandpit.
Strawberries growing in the red tub. This was taken by Jacob (age 5). He chose the subject himself, and really thought it through – he liked that the strawberries AND the pot were both red.
This is our entry into the Travel Supermarket ‘Kids Capture the Colour’ competition. All photos were taken by my children, and all ideas for the shots were their own.
