Fish are Friends, Not Food

Fish are Friends, Not Food

Last year I visited Antelope Canyon twice and was blown away both times. When we had a half day to kill on our 2012 trip Willie, Yan, and I immediately knew wed spend it at Lower Antelope Canyon. We arrived slightly before they opened and were the first people down into the canyon. Because we asked for the photography pass we were given 2 hours in the canyon, by ourselves, without a guide. We didnt see another person in the canyon for at least an hour

While wandering around Lower Antelope Canyon I came across this rock that was getting a pretty purple glow on it. I was on a purple color hunt and as soon as I saw the color I stopped and setup. Thats when I realized that this rock looked like a smiling face. I actually thought it looked like a smiling shark. My first thought was FISH ARE FRIENDS, NOT FOOD — from the movie Finding Nemo. I had to crop this photo to avoid another rock on the right side and now I dont think this looks like a shark anymore. Its a smiling something though. You can make out the nose, the mouth, the shin, and the cheeks.

What do you think this looks like
