found in nature: organic compositions

i love traveling to museums to soak up inspirations. some visits inspire more of my "need to capture on film" instinct though. aquariums in particular bring it out of me. i've found that i can easily go through hundreds of shots just on jellyfish! 

while on vacation in oahu, hawaii. we visited the waikiki aquarium. while the aqaurium was small, easily traversed in less than an hour, i was privy to a special moment with a special octopus. thank goodness for rapid shot capabilities! this whole little scene unraveled in about 5 seconds. 

i particularly loved the textures of the tentacles, and the compositions that are created as they coil and swirl through the water.
