Water

I gave in to temptation (easy...) and decided to do a week based on the five elements. What a nice idea. It gives me the chance of looking at my photos with a different perspective. And I've decided to share photos taken during previous vacations, in different towns.

Today, Monday, for the water theme I've chosen a photo taken at the New England Aquarium in Boston, two weeks ago on a short trip with my two daughters. I have been to the aquarium already, a couple of years ago; Alizée too, last year. And Miranda had her turn this year. I didn't really want to take pictures inside, it is very dark and in general, I'm not really satisfied with the results in these conditions.

But then, at the end, I surrendered and I admit that I don't regret it at all. I love the pictures of the anemones, they are beautiful plants. I love the ocean, but more as a landscape than a pool (and, as a road, well... I guess it's fine). In fact, I rarely swim in it; the poor swimmer I am must be the reason. But the sea... The seashore. The sound of the sea. The smell of the sea. And those wonderful creatures living under the sea...

This picture is my daughter's favorite from the aquarium, that's why I chose it. She told me she loves the fuzzy colors and, well, I agree!

Beautiful aquarium picture, thanks for sharing a favorite of your daughter; I like the fuzziness too! Your words about the sea touch me so, because I too love the sound, the smell and idea of life beneath the waves.
Have a joyful day.

I wish I could go by the sea in the fall. We never know!
