Photo Friday: Narrow / Maui Ocean Center


Maui Ocean Center

Photo Friday Challenge: Narrow

This week’s Photo Friday Challenge is “Narrow” – which can have quite a few meanings. I chose a meaning along the lines of the contributor’s original photo, which is a narrow space. This photo is from the underwater tunnel at the Maui Ocean Center in Wailuku, HI on the island of Maui.

When I visited Sea World in San Diego, CA as a child, the Shark Encounter exhibit, which has a similar tunnel, always freaked me out, and years later this tunnel in Maui had the same effect. You feel the pressure of the water that surrounds you, as sharks and manta rays swarm around and above you. For a kid it was creepy, but even as an adult I felt like I entered a portal into another world, a quiet, dark world full of strange and deadly creatures. I feel like this photo captures the atmosphere really well!

What is your favorite Narrow space? Let me know in the comments!
