Boxy Fish

This exotic fish was swimming in a tank in Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium. It was a curious sort, and when I put my phone near the glass he moved towards it. Fun times! I spliced in a photo of trees to add some ‘vegetation’.


Blurred Lines

This was an experimental shot. The subject is the brightly striped fabric on a chair. I was spinning my phone round as I took the shot, trying to see if I could get a half decent blur effect. From this image I can see I need to try more similar experiments!

Picture in picture

Remember the post about my favourite restaurant closing? We were there for lunch today on its final day. I took a photo of the mural that dominates one of the dining rooms. Look how 3D the marigolds appear! To the right of this magnificent art is a framed photograph hung on a colorful door. That is one of mine. It’s a photo of the outside of the restaurant taken in a storm, bought for the owner. We were delighted to walk in one day and see it hanging there.

Goodbye, Cempazuchi! We will miss you.
