Well, it’s one of those weeks when mistakes have been made…that’s allowed, right? I took my computer in to have additional memory installed because all of my raw files are taking up so much space. I was so focused on getting “work” done before being without it, that I completely forgot to write my post for this week for Monochromia. So, desperately not wanting to disappoint, I searched my iPhone photograph library. Thankfully I had a few images from our trip to Grand Cayman that I had converted to black and white using the photo app. I selected one and emailed the image above of a Serpent Star Fish to our family laptop and voila, I have a post.
The picture isn’t the greatest quality as it was taken with my phone, but I found this creature to be quite intriguing and the composition was satisfactory. The Star Fish crawled out of a large Conch shell and drew quite a crowd on the beach. Kids stopped in their tracks, stopped playing catch, and ran to see what we’d found.
I had never seen a Star Fish like it before, but when we flipped it over to examine it, it had little tentacles and looked just like a Star Fish on the bottom. Upon doing an on-line search, we discovered that it was indeed a Star Fish – a Serpent Star Fish. Have you ever seen one? The center was black as coal.
Have a great weekend!
