Prawns anyone? (Prawn Heads)

Prawn Heads and other scraps
Here is a very different perspective on this well-known seafood! This is a close-up photo of the scraps left over after a meal of prawns. The prawns' heads and tails are all that is left.

The large black eye is the most outstanding part of the prawn heads shown here, especially the center one. The natural body curves are also a feature of this photo, and the detailed look at this common but little-examined creature provides plenty of interesting items for examination.

This is yet another example of what amazing photographic subjects can be found just by looking around us. So much of what we see is a wide-angle view of the world - sometimes we can discover many more insights when we just stop and look under our noses!

This photo was taken with the Kodak C330 camera.

  1. the black eyes add great contrast

  2. Yep, they really do stand out. I find this picture very interesting - it brings out the other side of everyday items so well.
