Dog Tag Chandelier, Fayetteville Veterans Park Photograph by John Creech Jr., My ShotSometimes there’s a beauty in a purely abstract image. Shooting in black and white and playing around with depth of field are ways to create images that mesmerize us with their shapes and forms. The success of this shot, for me, is the shallow depth of field. A sharp depth of field would have been very confusing, as all the elements would have been in focus. The interplay between the sharp tags and the soft ones, as well as the light and dark, make for an image that has staying power: You want to keep looking at it endlessly.

BLUE STARFISHLinckia laevigata©funzug.com 
Linckia laevigata (sometimes called the “blue Linckia” or Blue Star) is a species of sea star in the shallow waters of tropical Indo-Pacific. The most common color morph found is pure, dark or light blue, although one can find the aqua,   purple or orange variation throughout the ocean. These sea stars may   grow up to 30 cm/11.75”  in diameter, with rounded tips at each of its  arms — some individuals  may bear light or darker spots along each of  its arms. It is firm in  texture, and possessing slightly tubular,  elongated arms common to most  of other Ophidiasteridae, and usually  possessing short, yellowish tube feet. An inhabitant of coral reefs and sea grass beds, this species is relatively common and found in sparse density throughout its range. 
The genus Linckia is known to be creatures with remarkable  regenerative power, capable of defensive autotomy against predators and  may reproduce asexually
