Octo-Reel

Whilst in Bournemouth Aquarium, I found this rather magnificent octopus hiding in a cup (or bucket!) which seemed like a perfect moment for this site.  As I approached his tank he writhed his way out of the cup and settled in front of me. I managed to capture a few shots on camera as per the sequence.  Truly captivating.  The second shot shows where science fiction got the inspiration for a typical alien from!

To try and understand photoshop a bit better, I self created the film-reel and then twisted it all up for the second pic, which probably took me far longer than it should have done!
