That posthumous - he's a clever one. :)

I got lucky with this shot. I thought I would try and get a picture of our goldfish for this title.

In the book, I think the dolphins were thanking the people of earth for the fish when they left. Something like that. There's more to it, some kind of message too. But it's been a long time since I read the story and this is all I remember.

Anyway, I just wanted to use the goldfish for the title. Well the little bugger is pretty fast and I just started randomly shooting in hopes of catching it. I got this shot instead and it just seems so comical and fitting of the book. And the white squiggles really are there in the original. The lines made me think of the fish trying to escape some unknown force. And that's all there is to it.

So long and thanks for the comments :)

Heh! Made me smile. Quite appropriate for the Adams tale, I think.

I love the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. My buddy wants me to read the books but I am not much of a reader. Pretty cool shot.
