Little Guy - Big Camera

I suspect this young lad will grow up to be a serious photographer.
Or, more accurately, that he'll continue being a serious photographer.

It was a winter day along the Preßnitztalbahn, in the Erzgebirge region of Eastern Germany. I was engaged
in shooting the vintage narrow gauge steam locomotives with their freight and passenger trains, when I caught
sight of his serious and intent demeanor as he checked his images on his serious D-SLR.

Later, back home, as I edited my images, I thought with amusement that when I was the boy's age, I was
messing around with a Brownie Hawkeye box camera and Kodak Verichrome Pan black and white film!

    I think I can see his Dad in the background. The boy has the strap around his neck, so the camera is perfectly safe and he can experiment to his heart's content. Such is the start to a grand career ;-)
