captivated by the cold-blooded

yours truly visited an aquarium in suburban tokyo

everyone joining in
(it was a very large tank...)

nice under-jaw symmetrical squash patterns

you are in captivity
have no business smiling like that

narcissus, aren't you?

"...seen the light..."

the next guy is the most cooperative of all
he posed for me showing 3 different angles


this one came out the best
see his confident demeanor

all paused still

performance art?

next two:
frozen in tank
remained completely still
unmoved by my intrusion

warm-blooded and
on the loose

the place is in a funky little town named kichijyouji
the aquarium is part of this zoo

thank you for your visit

the first sunrise of the year
beaming through beach debris

wishing you all out there
a year to remember---
