Oldie but Goodie

Fooling around one day with a very old digital point and shoot and my daughter's microscope -- I took this photo of a goldfish still in the egg.  We have a backyard pond -- so this was scooped and shot and then quickly returned to the pond.

This one was already hatched.  The goldfish were of the fancy kind -- with spots.  Seeing the eyes on this one gives more perspective for the one in the egg above.

Don't ask me why -- but I love this photo.  Yesterday I needed gas -- so as I got out of the car I grabbed the camera.  Just as I was wondering what there was to shoot while the gas was filling into the tank, I looked down and saw this.  Obviously this is a photo of nothing -- but the color and the geometrics of the composition are very appealing to me.
