Sometimes when my son misbehaves I like to trap him in a giant Hamster tube.
Okay, I was kidding about that. This is him at the play ground across the street. I was originally going for a Nicholson from “The Shining” moment, but he ended up looking too cute. I don’t think the movie would have been that scary if a happy toddler played Jacks part. “Here’s Johnny! Now give me some candy and take me to the swingset”
Anyway, the original shot was pretty cool, but I got to screwing around with it in black and white, and then going for a Holga look and ended up with this. My son likes it because he thinks he looks like he’s in a spaceship.

    Spaceship is right! I can see why your son likes this! Great shot, I love the cheekiness of the boy radiating from it. :)
