impromptu paperweight

While at the Brookside Art Fair this year--a couple weeks ago--I went by a bank's booth (Midwest Bank, I believe) and they had a few great rocks on some papers--handouts--as paperweights.  I saw this one and loved it immediately.  The rock itself is terrific but the contrast of it on this white background was, I thought, really wonderful.  Anyway, it isn't the first time I photographed rocks in Brookside.  The young ladies had picked this up from the nearby rock garden to hold down their papers.  Great serendipity and contrast.
