This week’s ‘Photo of the Week’ is a choice in response to a video I saw last week online which I quite enjoyed. The video was of an aquarium in Okinawa, Japan filmed for nearly 5 minutes accompanied by a music track. Whilst a relatively simple concept, the video reminded me of a recent trip I made to Beijing’s own aquarium and the hours that I whiled away just watching and gazing at the animals inside of the tanks. A child-like wonder seems to take over me in aquariums and it is all too easy for an afternoon to disappear.
Having studied Zoology at university, I am no stranger to watching animals for prolonged periods of time but there is something quite special about aquariums. I’m not a particularly big fan of zoos but I do like their watery counterparts, as long as there is plenty of room for the aquatic residents.
So, this is quite a sedate and relaxing photo for the beginning of the week. It does not require much explanation. Just sit back and enjoy.
