Shot with Canon 50mm f2.5 macro lens.

Pet rocks were introduced back in 1975. Jacko and I made our own in the late 70's or early 80's. Jacko's had a green mohawk... of course. I don't remember what mine looked like.

After learning what are the pet rocks, had to bump this up... too bad others may not have an idea what the heck those pet rocks were...

We wern't allowed pets. So I never had a rock. Thanks for reminding me of this sad time.....

I might have cropped a bit off the bottom to eliminate that lower most rock, which is rather bright and distracting, but this is a great concept and shot otherwise.

Good photo. A little unsharp mask would have made this photo POP!

nice job. The contrasting colour and depth of field really draw your eyes in.

Little known fact that I discovered while looking up the 70s for this assignment - the rocks with the eyes are not the "original" pet rocks, they're a later knock off :)
