Rocket boy

Discussion in 'People' started by Beezle, May 8, 2005.

  1. Wandered into my kid's room just now and there he was. Wearing his rocket pajamas and under a "tent" made from his planetarium blanket. I stuck my head under there to say hello.

    Then I realized the blanket glowed from light passing through it.

    D70, ISO 1600, 17-55 DX @ 17mm. Flashed fired off camera, manually, outside the blanket. A bit of neat image applied. Would have arranged a better shot, but he wasn't in the mood.

    That's a really nice moment you captured there with your son. Maybe he'll be out in the field some day shooting off rockets like the boys from October Sky.

    Now there's a keeper!!

    You sure captured the moment well!!
    Aren't kids great subjects!
  4. That's a keeper! Years from now, when he's a teenager and you're at your wits end with his shenannigans looking at this will help put things back in perspective.

    Awesome shot Beezle

    I think it's perfect, a perfect memory, and well done to boot!
  6. A serious young man. Very cute.
  7. Thanks for the kind words.

    He can be serious, but I think he mostly just wasn't in the mood for his pop to be pointing a camera at him.

    One of the great joys of parenthood is of course watching their personalities develop. He puts a lot of effort into really exploring and knowing the things he is interested in. This makes me very happy as I was the same when I was young.
  8. It is... for the first 12 years. The changes over the following 8 years aren't always as enjoyable. 8).
  9. I can just imagine. :wink:

    Unfortunately for my boys, I'll be in my late 50s and probably grumpy. :twisted:
  10. Awe, he has such a sweet face. Nice picture!! :D  :D  :D 
  11. What a creative photo. Well done.
