Seahorse in the Black

Seahorses don't live in the deepest, darkest regions of the ocean so life for the average seahorse won't be as dark and isolated as this image portrays it. However, I think it does help convey the idea of being isolated, alone, and perhaps even a little helpless in the endless black of the sea.

The original photograph was of course bright and colorful, but the Monophix iPhone photography app provided the needed desaturation, darkening, vignetting, and grain. The Photo Studio iPhone photography app added a few additional touches to strengthen the overall image.

In aquariums that the public can visit, life in the sea typically appears bright, colorful, and beautiful. Of course it does — if aquariums presented their exhibits in any other way, the public wouldn't come in and there wouldn't be any funds (through fees and government support) to even exist. Thus insofar as the educational mission of an aquarium allows them, to, they must present things in as attractive a manner as possible.

But just how bright and colorful is life in the sea to those creatures which actually have to spend their entire lives there? It's probably more bright and colorful for those who live closer to the surface and closer to shore because there's simply more light there. For others, though, the lack of light surely makes everything far darker than we realize — and thus makes every individual creature more isolated and alone.

This seahorse was photographed with an iPhone in the Florida Aquarium in Tampa, Florida.
