RDP: Fish

I was skimming through my WordPress Reader and came upon this prompt by curioussteph at Ragtime Daily Prompt. You can click on the link to check out what’s happening and join in the fun. Todays prompt is FISH. Since I grew up on fishing boats and still work on them occasionally, I figured I should have plenty to say about fish and a few good photos, so here are a couple…

I took that one while I was wandering along the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. There were thousands of these catfish swimming around near the ferry docks. I suppose people coming and going on the boats must feed them. I saw a few people fishing nearby, I wonder if it would be safe to eat the fish in this river. It didn’t look very clean, I doubt it would be healthy.

I took that one on the Galata Bridge in Istanbul. I wasn’t doing the fishing, but the entire bridge was crowded with locals who were. On the bottom level, there were restaurants serving up the catch. I’m not sure what kind of fish they are, but the silver ones look like some kind of mullet.

I’m not sure what kind of fish this cute little orange guy is. I took this photo at the Houston Zoo a while ago. I’m a member and I like to go up there and spend the day taking photos. It’s really hard to get good ones, since none of the fish ever stays still!

New WordPress- Ugh!

Does anyone else hate this new WordPress (with the blocks) as much as I do?

It makes it SO much harder to write a post. It makes me spend so much more time and energy to write one. It makes it so frustrating. It makes it much less enjoyable to get on here and so I don’t want to blog as much. Maybe even not at all.

In addition to all the trouble I have to write this blog, add photos, make galleries, it constantly crashes and I have to go back to the draft and then post immediately or I lose everything I just did! 😦

Does anybody see any advantage to this new system?
