Chip Off The Old Block

Last weekend I took my son to the top of Twin Peaks in San Francisco, California to watch the rising Hunter’s Moon. Being 3 years old I expected him to be excited about seeing the moon after all he was wearing NASA boots, but his enthusiasm for taking pictures quickly took over. To warm up before the moonrise we took photos together of the western span of the Bay Bridge. After that we huddled to keep warm and watched the moon rise taking in the details on the live view display of my camera. We weren’t out to take award winning photos, but we sure had fun. Then again now that I think about it, perhaps if a 3 year old class of nature photography exists a photo submission might be worth while. Nah!!!!
