    Paul, awesome set of pictures. He is so earnest and ready to take off in number three.

    Memories for a lifetime.

    I hope your family appreciates the quality of these images that they will surely cherish for years; we're used to seeing great photography here at CiC, but relatively few families have such talented photographers.

    Consider cropping the last one to eliminate the soccer ball, which is distracting for me.

    I adore the expression on his little face in the last one. All concentration and totally committed to the jump at hand.

    Well done Paul. These are truly memorable keepsakes.

    when he asked to watch him i had a feeling he was thinking of jumping off his slide.but he said that was a bit high at the moment.

    If you put them in a single frame or hang them together, you might notice that each image has a slightly different tone. That might be because of using different filters when you converted to black-and-white. It might be because the color cast in the color versions is slightly different. These images are so special that it would be well worth the effort to get the tone the same if you have the post-processing skill to make that happen. Even if you don't, these are still wonderful images as I mentioned in my first post.

    Paul truly awesome set of images and the back ground is perfect! Reminds me of one of my grandsons, nothing scares him. Well at least the first time around.

    I think Mike makes a very good point here. Something worth having a look at.

    As everyone else has already said, great set of images. If he has any, his children and his grandchildren will love looking at them when they are the age he is now.

    Watch out if he starts making a giant kite; it could lead to trouble with the neighbors.

    Uh oh. When you give him his first camera and things don't work out quite like he expects, he's gonna tell you that he needs longer glass.

    Oh, sweet. That's what photography is all about; capturing those moments and making them last.
