This week is ephemeral at WordPress photo challenge. https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/ephemeral BY KRISTA.
I was born on the water, I am attracted by the sound of water splashing against the rocks, the swaying motion of waves, the salty air, the smell of the sea and of course the colors of the water and the colors of the underwater world. I don’t snorkel and I don’t dive, the closest way I can get to the underwater world is visiting the aquarium. Every flora and fauna from the smallest to the largest examples fascinates me and I always come away with a treasure of photos.
At Monterey Aquarium in California the medusa or commonly called jellyfish is my biggest attraction. I can spend hours watching them going up and down and get hypnotized by their slow motion and magnificent colors. The orange color is so deep, bright and illuminated, it almost doesn’t look real. What beautiful art nature creates!!! The orange and blue are opposite to each other on the color wheel and they attract so perfectly. Can you tell I am in love with colors? I need to be inspired, I need to look at colors every day and be surrounded by them.
I caught two small sharks in the moment of kissing, at least they seem to be kissing. My prompt reflexes immortalized them in time, in my mind they will stay like that forever.
I hope you have the chance to visit aquariums, it’s time well spent. Ciao,
