These are posted just for fun. Perhaps you have to be the father to see the humor in these shots but hopefully everyone will be able to appreciate them. My son is seven and tonight I overheard him telling his neighborhood friends that he wants to be a photographer when he grows up. (This is OK with me, I have only forbidden him from law enforcement and defense attorney). We have been having fun taking pictures together and he seems to have inherited the old Panasonic FZ1 as "his" camera. I thought the view from the perspective of a seven year old to be interesting. First of all, this is my little man:

Dad would not have stuck it up in the air if he did not want me to take a picture of it . . .

Dad likes macro shots, therefore I like macro shots.

I don't know what I did right to end up with two good kids. Hopefully this brings you half the smile it brought me.

Very heart warming. I like the dof and sharpness on that last macro shot. Your son has the making of a good photographer. Must be in the genes.

Tim, thanks for sharing. A very nice perspective on things and life.

Good on him, I wish him luck.

Tongue firmly in cheek..

BUT, "forbidding" means absolutely nothing, some dayd he will be old enough to make up his own mind.

BESIDES, he could well become another CRASHER he works (used to) law enforcement and isn't CSI in defence of someone.

Great shots, got to love kids at that age too, they see everything as an adventure and get excited about the smallest things.

I go into work tomorrow to hand in my badge and ID, I fly out on Saturday and officially resign on Sunday. I swear in with the Feds on Monday and get a new ID and badge.:-)

From what I have been told, I will have internet access and will be able to take lots of photographs, so I got a LowePro AW TreKker with ALL my gear in it. I plan to take lots of shots..So is your son (James) interested in an assignment on a group of tropical islands with a bunch of international coppers, to take some snaps too :blah:.

Stay safe and I will post when I get sorted over there.

He took some great shots! I love the shot of the Newfoundland. It's always fun to see photos from a kid's perspective. My son is 13 now, but he's been taking disposable cameraswith himto summer camps ever since he was 6 or 7. I have always been amazed at some of the shots he brings home.
