Swimmers no more
See, I have a dismal track record when it comes to keeping goldfish alive. Some people have brown thumbs. And although I'm not sure what euphemistic color my digits would otherwise be, it's entirely fair to call me an inadvertent pet fish killer. As soon as they see me through the sides of their glass bowls, I'm quite certain the countdown clock begins ticking.
Perhaps to atone for my bad-fish-owner vibe, I shoot them at the grocery store. Maybe there isn't really a reason beyond the fact that they just look so bizarre on that bed of ice. I've never actually bought fish to bring home for supper - personal rule: no eating anything I can recognize - so I'm not sure what might compel a shopper to pick the left-hand fish over the right-hand one. But as photographic subjects, they pretty much top everything else in the store.
Your turn: These fish need names. Suggestions?
