Eye see the rust mum!

My son enjoys helping me find photo opportunities, so what better way to enjoy the moment than to combine the two. We had so much fun. I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful son.

    Awesome shot, Melissa! I just love the contrast of the hard steel and the soft portrait… gotta love those eyes :)

  • Thanks Sandy. I was combining my love of “eye” photography with your love of “rust” photography and this is what I created.
