Searching through some of my older posts, I found this one. It is both a photo taken with my phone’s camera, and it is a photo of an aquarium.
I remember being truly surprised seeing it once back home. The surprise came from the facts I a. didn’t use flash (not allowed as they harm the fishies…) and b. was in near total darkness on the bottom level of San Francisco’s Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park.
I had just gotten the phone at the time of this shot so didn’t know what shooting capabilities I’d be working with. Years later, I still have this phone- haven’t found a single reason (including photographic!) to ‘upgrade’ yet.
I still have lots to learn about light and refraction and camera angles and things of that nature, but I’m OK with the learning part. My phone’s camera and my dedicated digital cameras over the years have continued to amaze and instruct me creatively.
Besides, even if I didn’t have a camera on this day, I would have simply appreciated the calm under the waves… and the fishies!
