Pictures my son takes – Mendon Ponds Park

You’ve seen my preview of the Mendon Ponds Park field trip.

He took some of the same shots as I did, only that since he’s shorter, they look a tlittle different. Like this one:

In the end, though, he was absorbed by details. And the details are what make his photos brilliant.

Here's this awesome stick in Devil's Bathtub that I must have shot a dozen times.

This one is gratifying, since I’m a geologist and he’s actually taking pictures of rocks.
