Goldie,the goldfish,was confused.
With so many others sharing the same tank
it was all too easy to forget in which direction you were headed.

I used to have a giant silver dappled shubunkin (which is a Japanese goldfish except mine wasn't gold) who glided around our tropical community tank all day picking up algae-covered pebbles, sucking on them like boiled sweets for a few secs before spitting them out... he loved doing that...

Doesn't matter, when they get to one side, they just have to turn around and go the other way anyway.

Jim said...

Nice thinking, I agree. However when this picture was taken they all were headed away from the camera. Note that none are headed to the middle, all outward.

Ruthinian Gregoire said...

I will be confused myself too. nice take on this week's challenge.

Shakira Choong said...

This reminded me of my visit to Hong Kong once. I was walking in a crowd or rather I was in a crowd and it was moving...I was so lost and apparently I fainted. I truly know the feeling...Mine is here
Have you a truly AWESOME WEEK!!!

Akelamalu said...

That's true SAW but being a fish Goldie doesn't realise that. ;)

None of them look as though they know where they're going to me Jim!

Thanks Ruthinian :)

That must have been scary for you Shakira! :0
