Rock 'n' Aleks

This interesting rock was found by my 4 yo son Aleks at the Australian Heritage Festival, Jondaryan Woolshed. I decided to take a macro shot of it, just to see how it would come out and it turns out Aleks was in the background poking his tongue out.

I like the contrasting colours and the expression on Aleks' face.

    Thanks Maria and Lynne.

    And no, we didn't keep the rock. We have a strick policy of not keeping rocks Aleks finds, otherwise the house would soon be burried. On the same day at different times he had a piece of coal, a small round rock, a large grey rock, another small rock and then asked about this rock again.

    Great image.

    I think this would qualify for the Bokeh group: Bokeh: Smooth & Silky

    This is really growing on me, and at the time it was just a bit of mucking about with the the supermacro mode on the camera. I've managed to capture that ellusive bokeh and satisfied the rule of thirds too.
