I took this picture yesterday at the Tropical Aquarium in Paris @: [link]

I'm not basicelly mad about aquariums but I needed to go there yesterday ! I wanted something a bit different from my usual work ! for me underwater and the sky are very similar, fishes looks like birds...well these ones are very dangerous and I prefer to see them in an aquarium than in the sky, or in my bathroom !

The Red Pirahas live in South America: Amazonia, Paraguay, brazil...

The vertical scratches you can see on the top of the picture are on the glass ! but I like them and it adds something to the picture I think...

Very beautiful contrast and coloration scheme. Love the vibrant greens and the tones of the finshes' scales.The capturing of the scratches on the glass, really adds a nice spice to the picture. It kind of applies an even greater potency to quality and detail. Also, the capturing of the motion is on perfect cue.

I'm asking myself how many selfportraits you can have one your computer ? about myself I must have shoot more than 7000 pictures of many styles in the last two years so it makes 194 of the old 24x36 films of 36 exposures ! not too bad ! :-)

I'm sure you're thinking about the first pictures you'll shoot with your repaired camera will be back at home !? ;-)
