Black and White Wednesday - Through his eyes

This last Saturday we ventured up to San Francisco to celebrate the Mid Autumn Moon Festival with a few thousand other folks.  The day was something that we've looked forward to for many years as this was the first time we've celebrated with our little cricket.  Once we were out on the streets of the city, I handed the camera to Big J and said have at it!  He eagerly took the camera and was gone in a flash.  He is itching to get a DSL of his own and anytime I relinquish mine he is so happy.  Once home I eagerly uploaded his booty to see what he captured and I wasn't disappointed at all!

Oh man I can't wait until he starts his photography class!!!!  I loved looking through them and seeing what the world looks like to him through a lens.  I also loved trying to keep my eye on him in the crowded streets of Chinatown as he was all over the place and had no issues putting himself in the right spot for the picture he wanted.  I can learn something from him I think!!  It was hard for us to choose which pictures to process and put up (he took about 200 pictures).  We processed the majority of pictures using the Nelly Nero Actions.  

Happy Wednesday!!  Hop on over to Lisa's blog for some more black and white enjoyment and to give a big hurray to her family for getting their consulate appointment!!


you captured SF wonderfully :)

I love love love THESE!!! He'll do GREAT in his photography class. He captured things that sometimes we ignore. I wish I could be like him too and don't be shy to snap pictures wherever I want =)

Wow. Hats off to Jacob: they are fantastic photos. Very impressive indeed.

Beautiful photos all of them. Your son is very talented. I'm sure he'll love photography class.
