Visions of Sock Monkey


Mr. B and I were chatting recently.  A Facebook friend had been looking at Mr. B's photo albums and wanted to know about one entitled "Visions of Sock Monkey."

"Now who did that?" the friend asked.

Big Sis loved to play photographer when she was younger.  One day, she took Sarah, the sock monkey my mother made her, and propped her up on the ledge of one of our 1950s square windows.  While my husband watched, she started posing the monkey, snapping pictures of it from all angles, like a fashion photographer.

Four years have passed, and the sock monkey pictures still crack us up.

  1. My boy loves taking pictures too and all I can say is Thank Goodness for digital cameras!!! The outcome is not as good as your photoshoot but still fun to look at! Kids can surprise us in many ways :)

    1. Yes, digital cameras are a wonderful thing! My jaw would have dropped if I'd had to develop this as a roll of fil somewhere! ;)

      The girls do have their Instax mini instant cameras, and the film for those isn't cheap, but the pictures are so different fro traditional cameras, that I figure it's okay. Well, that and I monitor when they use it...

    1. There were 15 shots, and Mr. B's description of how she posed it and moved around it, snapping away, is the funniest. He kept expecting her to call out, "Work it, baby!" or other stereotypical fashion photographer phrases. :o)
