Two-year-old takes his truck on wild adventures

And Mom takes the shots

We all like to take photos of our kids playing and having a good time with toys and gadgets we get for them. We especially like it if we can join in on the fun and create a fun filled visual story. But, honestly, if you’re like me and my family it doesn’t happen all that often, but when it does it is a real treat for us and the folks we share our photos with.

Given that I like trying to create little photo stories, I was happy to run across this photo sequence created by a mom with her young son. Turns out she’s a pro photographer and I’m a rank amateur, but I am encouraged by what I see here and think with a bit of planning and practice I might be able to create a good story too.

Once I have the photos I want, the easiest part of my story creation will be creating a slideshow that friends and family will see. The slideshow story will automatically be available to view once I upload my photos into a dotPhoto Album and send the “Album Links to Image View” address to the folks I want to invite. When folks come to that address they will see the slideshow. Note that our pro photographer’s photos can be seen by clicking a link in the story, but there’s no slideshow like we can see on dotPhoto.

Getting back to our pro photographer, Alaina Carr; here are a few fun shots from her wild adventure story of her son, Miles, as it appears on the website. If this introduction catches your fancy click the link at the end of the blog to see more of the photos for yourself. From babble:

“In a photo series called “The Adventure of Miles,” Mile’s mother documents the daily adventures of the toddler and his Little Tikes Truck on her Facebook page. Despite the fact that Miles’ feet could barely even reach the ground while sitting in his truck a few months ago, the young cruiser has kept a steady pace of road trips in his plastic ride.”

Here’s Miles.



As you can see, he’s raring to go!
But first a few stops, one stop at the drive-thru bank to make a deposit,



and a second to get a bite to eat.


See the rest of Mile’s story at: Then it’s our turn to create a photo story.
