Jelly Balls

Jelly Balls

We bought these weird jelly balls that absorb and retain water so that plants can grow in them. A sort of decorative soil, if you will. The balls start out as tiny grains that look like dried fish eggs, but once you soak them in water for a few hours, they grow to about half an inch in diameter. I thought they looked interesting up close, and actually sort of reminded me of the Macintosh screensaver. But once I started taking photos, I realized there was a lot more detail going on, which I find makes the photo a lot more interesting.

Hill Inlet

The fine white sand of Hill Inlet and Whitehaven beach in Australia’s Whitsunday Islands.

This spectacular area is the closest I’ve come to paradise, I think.  I’m of the opinion that no photo can adequately capture this absolutely spectacular view.
