Saturday Snapshot - January 7

Saturday Snapshots is hosted each week by Alyce of At Home With Books. It's always a fun change to do a photo post each week to break up the book posts.


Went to the aquarium last week and took my camera with me. This was one of the resulting photos that worked out. Perhaps one of the reasons some of the others didn't was because of the weird glass they were using on this tank - it was in the kids area, as some kind of a half-globe which distorted things quite a bit.

Oh how pretty! Love the stripes and the setting. It's been a long time since I've been to an aquarium. They are peaceful and relaxing for me.

It had been a long time for me too. I want to go back some time soon - not on a weekend, so it's less busy and more relaxing.

Thanks for commenting.

Very nice photo...Love the coloring on the fish.

Trish said...

Great shot! Aquariums are always so beautiful and I can never get one decent picture.

Thanks Elizabeth. Have to say, I love your avatar.

Thanks Trish. I had a lot of bad pictures too. I think it has something to do with the glass and flashes etc. It just makes the good ones even better though.

He was, Diane. And so willing to pose, too. Thanks for stopping by.

Taking photos of fish (especially through curved glass) is so difficult! This one turned out very nicely.

Nise' said...

That is a good photo! Sorry the others did not turn out.

Karen Harrington said...

Nice catch! (wink)

Unknown said...

Thanks Alyce.

That's one of the great things about digital photography, Nise' it doesn't really matter, because you can always try for another shot. Thanks for stopping in with a comment.

Thanks Karen.

Hope all of you have a nice week.

Taking photos through glass can be tricky. Nice job! I could watch fish swim for hours.

The camera always wants to focus on the glass rather than what's on the other side of the glass. Thanks Marie.
