Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background…but first, Shift Perspectives!

This week’s, Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, the goal is to make the foreground of the photograph the center of the attention, thus making the real background, the backstage player.

Well, the center of attention for most of my shopping trips to Wal-Mart, an American multinational retail store, is the pet section.

Namely, the aquarium fish section.

In the background, the sign guarantees everyday low prices, even on pretty aquarium fishes swimming in the foreground. ♥

Careful, you may spend hours oohing and aahing at the variety of peaceful schools of aquarium fishes and forget what you came to Wal-Mart for in the first place.

Whatever you load your shopping cart with, Wal-Mart guarantees you everyday low price merchandise.

Where is the center of attention in your shopping adventures?

    Love these huge floating fish, Sunshine. The center of attention in my shopping adventures is to be aware of why I feel the need to buy something.
    We just got my son a betta fish for his birthday. I have to say that watching him/her swim around is peaceful. {{{hugs]}} Kozo

      who can resist the betta fishes!! your concept of awareness, as always, is a very good thought to take into any shopping adventure. it helps when you also think you have only a few $$ so the only thing left is to shop with your eyes. ha ha.
      thanks, Kozo and ☼sunHUGS!!

    Great use of reflections to make the background be an important part of the story of the picture – and still the background. Very nice work.
