nothing to say about this, other than I’m in the sort of mood where I think I’d like to be a jellyfish today … be nice to float around in warm surface currents somewhere in the Pacific … and stinging random strangers.

the unfortunate distortion and color fringing in the photos is due to the fact that I’m shooting not just through my own lens but through about 4 inches of plexi that’s keeping the jellies from stinging my nose.  someday I’ll shoot the real deal in open water with an Ikelite housing … but until then, it’s off to baltimore we go.

    Wow. You know, this is why I don’t take (many) pictures when I go to the Aquarium… I know my attempts will be pathetic. I far prefer to see pictures from someone who knows what they are doing, like you! Gorgeous. Just found your blog, it’s on my RSS feed now!
