I was told that every photo should tell a story, but for me it's the absence of a story paired with striking visuals that let your mind wander that make a great photo. Here my eyes travel the blue walls surrounding two colorful fish. For a moment I'm in the tank with them. My worries left behind. Nothing exists outside of this tank. For a moment I'm free.
Imagine for a moment that you are this eel. You may think that it is boring to be trapped in a cage all day. But that is our fast-paced mind filled with thoughts from the outside world. This eel is content. No homework, no bills to pay, no obligations to meet, no elections to follow; this eel is in a perpetual state of rest. And has no desire for anything more. This is paradise.
