Last weekend, we took a day trip over to Newport. Low 60’s and some wind – a pretty stunning late October day for the Oregon coast. After lunch at the Rogue Brewery (Brewer’s on the Bay – great Reuben sandwich) – we made a quick jaunt over to the Hatfield Marine Science Center. It’s a good little science center for the family- and includes some touch tanks for the kids.
One of the not-touch tanks is full of little jelly fish (1-3 inches in length) and had a UV fluorescent light in it (at least I think that’s what they used). In my, “Hey, that’s cool” mode – I tried to grab a couple of images of purple jelly fish with the 24mm on the 20D. At home – thinking purple jelly fish just weren’t all that cool – I decided to make the image a high contrast B&W. The result reminded me of those old science book pictures.
