There was a magic about the sea. People were drawn to it. People wanted to love by it, swim in it, play in it, look at it. It was a living thing that was as unpredictable as a great stage actor: it could be calm and welcoming, opening its arms to embrace its audience one moment, but then could explode with its stormy tempers, flinging people around, wanting them out, attacking coastlines, breaking down islands. It had a playful side too, as it enjoyed the crowd, tossed the children about, knocked lilos over, tipped over windsurfers, occasionally gave sailors helping hands; all done with a secret little chuckle. ~ Cecelia Ahern, The Gift

I thought they were beautiful and that they would make an elegant gallery wall in a bathroom or a beach house. These images are archived from old books and journals, therefore, the color was not ideal. I did some color correction in Photoscape and formatted the images in Powerpoint to be printed on letter or ledger paper for 8' x 10' or 11' x 14' frames. The…

A blanket octopus (genus Tremoctopus), photo taken in Dagatan, Calabarzon, Philippines. Blanket octopi are immune to the venomous tentacles of the Portuguese man o' war, which they tear off & use for offensive & defensive purposes. They also spread their webbed tentacles to appear larger, to intimidate threats & predators.
