Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

This photo, taken of a friend’s daughter at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, demonstrates something very bizarre, and not being a science specialist, I’ll consider it as an entry to last week’s Photo Challenge theme of Refraction. The little girl is walking on the other side of a large fish tank, with a photo on the wall behind her. Her head above the water line is in a different spot than her body below the water line! Whether or not that’s truly considered refraction, I don’t know. Perhaps my readers can weigh in. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)Weekly Photo Challenge, RefractionFor this photo challenge, show us what “refraction” means to you. It could be an image taken in a reflective surface, it could be light bent from behind an object, or it could mean remedial math homework: the choice is completely up to you. I’m looking forward to seeing how you interpret “refraction.”

      Thanks so much for your wonderful compliment, Tina! I was gone too much last week to have any time for digging through my pictures!

      Thank you! I wasn’t sure if I’d properly interpreted the true definition of refraction. ~SueBee

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
