on dry land

beached.jpg

Last week's Photo Fridaychallenge was foreign. I missed the cutoff but found myself thinking about the subject anyway. To me, foreign isn't necessarily about a language or culture not our own, because those are native in their own environment and we become the foreigners. But a boat in the dry California hills? A stranger in a strange land, a foreigner, lost and adrift. Maybe it can learn to float on wind instead of waves.

swarm

fish.jpg

They came right up beside the boat, lured by the rain of fish flakes. Jack smelt up close.

I chose this image even though I have ones that are technically better -- sharper focus and so on -- because I thought it captured the motion and the chaos of the cloud of fish surrounding us.
