Fish out of water

So close, yet so far
Deerfield Beach, FL, December 2008
About this photo: Thematic Photographic goes yellow for the next week. If you've got anything with a yellowish tinge in your photo archives - or have been hankering to shoot something in a banana shade - head over here to share it with la gang.
Whenever I feel overwhelmed with the world, I think back to the moment I took this picture. Sure, it's a plastic fish. But I relate to it all the same, as it's excruciatingly out of reach of its natural environment - and just as incapable of getting back on its own. Tough spot no matter who - or what - you are.

Your turn: We've all been there, haven't we?

Dear Carmi,
I still do! I often feel like a 16 year old 34 year old in a grown up job. How did I get here? :)

That would have been me 20ish years ago, coming from an isolated Island Community of the NE coast of Nfld and ending up in SW pun intended)out of water I was. And stood out like that yellow plastic fish.

Great shot Carmi.
