We had a wheelie great day at the Yamba Hot Rod Run. Me with my Canon 500D SLR and my son (5 yo) with his Fuji Finepix S5000.

He said to me in the morning “Mum can mine change lenses too?”

At the end of the day he surprises me and says “Mum, can we just pretend that mine is an SLR”

    yeah let’s just pretend it’s an SLR… I like his style, If he comes up with shots like this, I might even have to sponsor his step up, Melissa. Great shooting!!

  • Thanks Sandy. He would like to say that this one is his but it’s mine. After he captures a picture he views it an analyses if it is good or not. Such a character.

    Hi Melissa, I have a 5 yo grandson with a Nikon Coolpix. Don’t they just love doing what you do? This is great shot of yours..fabulous Repeating pattern of the spokes and lighting and sharpness are really good.

  • Thanks Tony, I was surprised at how well it turned out. Kids are so adorable taking pictures and have so much fun doing it. Glad your grandson enjoys it too. My son has so many images now he could start his own Redbubble page.
