Plant Park

A few weeks ago when we had the monsters for the weekend we went to visit the Plant Park which is a nursery with an outdoor restaurant and a very good childrens play area complete with a train, lots of animals and other entertaining (for children) thingys. At the entrance of the park there is a koi shop which I have never actually been into because I just can't see the point of keeping them. A sentiment shared by Patch after some greedy kingfishers scoffed all but one - a rather expensive way to feed kingfishers if you ask me. It took him weeks to see that there was actually one left because it hid almost permanently under a rock on the bottom. Maybe they're not so stupid after all. I didn't have my camera with me but I made a mental note to return and take a few pictures which are shown below.

The first I liked because of the grotesque distortion of the the fish just under the water. The second because of the total lack of individuality of fish which are in themselves highly individualistic. The last one for the recurrent images of fish as shown in the bubbles floating on the surface of the water. I've printed them on 10x15" paper and I just need to get them framed now.
