Eli, National Zoo and Aquarium, Canberra

Black and white portrait of Eli at the National Zoo and Aquarium, Canberra

Eli at the National Zoo and Aquarium, Canberra

My nephew Eli is the perfect portrait subject, completely unselfconscious and relaxed in front of the lens – as long as I can convince him he doesn’t want to play with the camera!  Luckily, on this occasion the fish at the National Zoo and Aquarium were far more interesting than me, and we ended up with this picture to commemorate one of his rare moments of stillness 🙂

  1. Just beautiful. There’s something wonderful about children and other interesting little creatures – they just seem to get on. There was a fair on at my son’s old primary school recently and – now that he’s one of the big high school kids – I thought he would be just out with the other lads kicking a ball about, but he was just sitting in the little mobile pet zoo with a chicken on his lap. Absolutely happy as larry.
