You may not know this, but I’m a bit of a tropical fish enthusiast. This started back when I was in middle school, when I won a goldfish at the county fair. I named him Ollie, and he lived for over 3 years. Not bad for a fair fish, right?
Nowadays I’ve got a small tank in my office where my favorite little Betta fish, Lorna Doone, lives. I’ve also got a 38 gallon aquarium that is home to many interesting fish, including the small school of Clown Loaches pictured above. That’s Mary, Mike, and Jeff (named for the characters from the books I learned to read from in elementary school), and they are loads of fun. They’re always entertaining, swimming upside down, and even “playing dead”, a game that I don’t particularly find funny but apparently they do.
We’re in the heart of back to school season right now, and I could very easily have shared a photograph of a bus or a school building for this week’s 52 Snapshots theme of SCHOOL, but I thought my 3 little class clowns would be much more interesting!
52 Snapshots is a weekly themed photo challenge, but it’s not just for pet bloggers! It’s for anyone who loves to take photos, and everyone is invited to participate! Simply snap a photo based on the current week’s theme (shown in the image above), and then share your photo in a blog post, on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or wherever you like. It’s so much fun seeing what everyone comes up with for each week’s theme.
On Fridays I share my photo for the week here in a blog post, and I give you a chance to link up with me and the other participants. All you have to do is add your link below and share your photos with the world! And no, it’s not too late to join us! We’d love for you to get in on the fun! If you’re sharing on social media, please be sure to use hashtag #52Snapshots so we can find you!
Just a couple of rules: first, please be sure to link DIRECTLY TO your #52Snapshots post – don’t link to your main website URL. And second, if you are not participating in the photo challenge, please don’t link up here. This blog hop is only for photos of this week’s theme, and unrelated links will be removed. Thanks for understanding!
