Hi I am Ashik. I think i can help you
You can use the Target Disk Mode, you have to use a Firewire cable to use Target Disk Mode.

Transfer files using FireWire Target Disk Mode
  • Remove all firewire cables from both the computers.
  • Connect the only FireWire cable that you want to use for transferring files.
  • Turn off your iMac and turn on your Macbook
  • Start up iMac G5 and immediately press and hold down the T key until the FireWire icon appears
  • Now you can see the iMac's hard drive icon on your Macbook. It will work as a external hard drive.
  • Copy the photos from iMac and paste it to your Macbook. (You can copy iPhoto from ~/Users/[username]/Pictures/iPhoto Library)
  • After copying the files, drag the iMac's hard drive icon into the trash and disconnect the firewire cables
