While visiting the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, OH, I spent some time photographing the Koi in one of the ponds. I liked this particular photograph because of the motion, the colors, the odd composition, and the interplay between the fish and the coins (particularly through the similar color palette).

    I love the flow of this image. It makes me think of the children's tale about the fisherman who saves a fish instead of taking it home to eat. Brilliant!
