|Many "ghost hoax" pictures were created and deleted by the kid. This one survives as it, apparently, makes the grade. The effect he was aiming for was a blurry mysticism that might be mistaken as evidence of the supernatural.|
The nine-year-old took an earnest interest in photography while we were on the East Coast, perhaps because my camera (as opposed to my phone) was often in my hand. I gave the kid the camera and with only rudimentary instructions he set out to capture the good stuff.
For the record he did take some fine pictures of a traditional nature, but shoes, or feet, emerged as an important focus of his work which is why I have chosen the following images to showcase.
