Weekly Photo Challenge – Edge

Cayman Sponges

Cayman Sponges

I shot these sponges because I enjoyed their edges! This shot was taken while diving in Little Cayman on Bloody Bay Wall. We had a wonderful time diving from the live-aboard boat – The Cayman Aggressor IV last October.

    To me, amazing how these sponges resemble pottery. Good catch as I haven’t seen anything like this before.

    I was going to say pretty much the same thing that aFrankAngle said. It does look like pottery. Just beautiful, Cathy.

      These particular tube sponges do look like pottery, Leon! We see many varieties of tube, barrel and vase sponges on the reefs in the Caribbean, and they make for good photographing subject matter!

  9. So that’s what sponges look like in the deep sea; not anything like what I use to scrub a pot.

      Hi V! Your comment sparked my interest and I went to Wikipedia to see if I could discern the difference between the sponges we see on the reefs in the Caribbean and kitchen sponges. Well, I guess there are about 10,000 different species of sponges, and the kitchen sponge is chosen for that purpose because it doesn’t have silica in its tissues, making it soft and pliable. The ones we see on the reefs are mostly tube sponges (like the ones I shot here) and barrel sponges. They come in many different colors, shapes and sizes, but I guess they’re not useful household purposes. Hope you’re doing well!

      • Thanks for filling me in on the facts of sponges! I am doing well. Milton and I are both very psyched about the upcoming New York Film Festival and the launch of the new theater season. So much to see!
