Poor Little Fishes

There's no guessing this week as to the connection between my last art post and today's photo post. It's fish. I just got back from Costa Rica. So what do I do? Put my Florida photos on my blog. But they were the closest match to this week's theme. And I love these photos. Unfortunately the reason I was able to photograph these poor little fishes was because they did not survive the brutal cold front Florida received in January. But I couldn't resist capturing their fleeting beauty. And obviously there were lots of other things washed up on the beach that day. All the photos were taken during one beach walk. Even my header shot was taken that day. It's the foam at the water's edge. Enjoy!

Honestly, even looking at fish is enough to make me hungry for seafood. Mission accomplished, Sharon!

Great pictures! Hope you had a great time there.

Wow, Sharon. Just WoW. I was sure that starfish was created out of the sand, but now I know it wasn't. And those first and last pictures... how beautiful and sad.

You take such beautiful pictures.
Sometime beautiful can be sad- like the fishie, but it was a beautiful creature in its day

Love the star fish. I have a thing for star fish. Wow, what a find with all of these animals. One walk and you saw all of this. I like that you documented it. Can't wait to see the photos of Costa Rica. Love the bubbles, love them, knew they were ocean bubbles, very cool!

Congrats on your award at the BVAS. We went to see the show on Saturday. I was impressed with the art.
