Anyone who knows me knows that when I like something, I REALLY like it. And this week, I really like the photos I got at the National Aquarium in Baltimore! While I can’t claim to be a fish lover, or even a marine life lover, I love photographing them. The jellies hold fascination for me on two counts. First, they are mysterious. By just looking at them, it would be hard to know if they were animals or some freaky plant life. It’s also not immediately obvious how it is they manage to move around, which is of course, mysterious. Second, they are graceful and flowing, which I find absolutely beautiful. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

And finally, my personal favorite of this series.  I love the effect in this shot of the little girl watching the same jelly I am, only on the other side of the curved aquarium. She seems to enter into the mysterious world of the jellies.
