FSO Aquariums

 

Elizabeth, I don't like to admit defeat but you and your Aquariums have beaten me.  I admit it.  

I went looking, honestly I did.  But everywhere I looked I only found things that had escaped their aquariums. 


Or things people had removed from their aquariums and done unspeakable things to.  
  Like sticking things up their bum ....
 
 
or nailing them to a fence.

  But then I found some fishes out of water leaping into the "Big Aquarium".  Will that do?

  1. I wondered how you were going to cope with that challenge. Great work. I'd have been floundering (pun intended).

  2. Pauline like the last one, rather a large glass for a gin and tonic! Maybe not.

  3. There is a shop at Dominion Road in Mt Eden that sells all sorts of real shells. I presume your blue star fish and shells are made by an artist.

  4. I think you did fine. I found one fish in a pond - so I may not post. Only my perfect record of posting for almost a year straight will keep me at it. I like the fish bowl pic... the color in the center has interesting movement.

  10. Hello Pauline, these photo's are just great. I would rather look at these than a poor goldfish going round and round in an aquarium.

  11. I think you did good. No one can hit exactly what the theme is each time. I like the different interpretations. Be sure and read Patience in Paducah.

  13. Well, I think you did just fine thank you very much! That first picture is my favorite, the shiny ceramic fish in little groups. Very nice.

  15. Interesting take, I have too few aquarium shots so really have to find a different view on this. Good job!

  16. LOVE the ceramic shells and starfish - where are they from, and how can I obtain some for my home?

  17. Brilliant post, Pauline. I do so love it when people find the topic out of their depth (if you'll excuse the pun) and have to improvise.

  18. I've been wondering....if you take photos of peoples artwork without their permission, should you acknowledge them when you post the photos? The first five of my photos were taken at the Smashed Pipi Gallery at Mangawhai http://www.smashedpipi.co.nz/ and I think were the work of either Barbara, Melissa, Aaran or Angela Hockenhull. There, I don't feel so bad now I have acknowledged them.

  19. How creative you were with this post. You did a super job. These assignments are all about interpretations. Not everyone has aquariums. We have a bay but no aquariums.
