Thematic Photographic 34: "Simple" v.1.0 - Simple Organism


"Simply Painful"

This week's Thematic Photographic theme is "Simple". As in simple object, simple(r) times... you get the drift.

So in browsing for a suitably simple image, I happened on this one that according to my notes had been a candidate for the Thursday Challenge "Soft" theme. Didn't make the final cut there (got edged out by a fluffy kitty) but it certainly qualifies here! Jellyfish -- in this case a sea nettle -- aren't as simple as say... protozoans, but... they're pretty damned simple. Kinda like a living Lava Lamp.

"A living lava lamp" ... what a great description! I love your choice for simple this week ... not only the subject, but the composition as well.

It is magnificent.

not a protozoan... but yes. Simple works to describe the nettle. Lovely photo!

Great capture! Such beauty in something that looks so incredibly slimy when it washes up on the beach...

A very dramatic and beautiful photo! It looks like one of the jellies I've seen t Monterey Bay Aquarium. I could watch them for hours.
