Blue Blue Crabs
I had the darnedest time thinking of a title for this. I was in a local Asian Grocery Store where fresh seafood means there are multiple tanks of live fish. The past month had a several tanks dedicated to our local dungeness crab but next to the live conch shells and scallops was a plastic bin of blue crabs. I thought blue crabs are native to the Atlantic. It appearred the transport of these guys started out chaotic with them fighting for space and now that they were near the end of their short on-shore life span it had become calm. With my camera phone I wanted to capture the crab chaos to calm, so my first title was "the 3c's.:"
Then my very talented blogger pal Don Michael Jr commented on incorporated the word blue and its double connotations. *bing* New title...thank you so much Don!
