Aquarium pictures

They have gone ahead and added a huge aquarium over at the Staten Island's St. George Ferry terminal. The structure is fairly large, with garish colored corals and the usual medley of bright tropical fish. It is also large, six feet in height and about twenty feet across and is reported to weigh ten tons. What fascinated me most was the fact that one could peer for a little bit into the blue green water, lose oneself in colors and after a while, it begins to take on an aura of a Pollock composition. A kaleidoscope of wild colors haphazardly sliced by reflections of the sky streaming in through the overhead bay windows reminding the busy commuter of broader connections – natural and artificial.
