day 251: city shark

This is a detail of the graffiti shown in the previous picture that didn’t fit into the frame. I actually went a similar way on the next day and couldn’t find anything else to shoot. This is a cool detail though and I have been fascinated with sharks for years. My fascination probably started after going to the Sealife Centre in Dresden once many years ago with my brother and watching the sharks for ages. This specific Sealife Centre doesn’t even exist anymore now, as far as I know.

On this note, I also want to show my support for Captain Watson of the Sea Shepherds who has been fighting against the shark fin mafia for years and now is at risk of being extradited to Costa Rica. Let’s just say that a Costa Rican prison isn’t exactly the place to be, if the mafia has a price on your head. Read more here and show your support as well.
