Fleeting Glances

Photograph by Jennifer Giliberto, National Geographic Your Shot

Fish and preschoolers consider one another in this image submitted by Your Shot member Jennifer Giliberto. She made this photo while chaperoning her daughter’s preschool field trip to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. “I loved the geometry and the levels of framing that the space visually created with [the children],” she says. “I was lucky that the fish cooperated and the scene just pulled together in the short amount of time they were alone in the space before they [ventured] onward.”

One cannot do anything but love this picture. The encounter of two different worlds. :)

Like a large eye looking into the underwater world. It captures the magical way that children perceive the things around them.
