decreasing size and the misalignment 
of the checkered patterns convinces 
your brain otherwise.  Source

Photographer Wayne MacWilliams was 
black water diving one night and caught 
a rare glimpse of a tiny fish hanging out 
inside a translucent sea creature. MacWilliams was black water diving off the coast of Palm Beach, Florida, during a late night adventure. Black water diving is basically just drifting in the pitch-black ocean at night. You aren’t aware of your surroundings because the only light you see comes from strobes.“I was drifting, at night in pitch black, it was really fun as you just do not know what will come your way. It may be a bit intimidating, it can be very spooky the first time you do it because it is jet black with no bottom to speak of.These beautiful creatures are interesting, bizarre, to say the least, and pretty foreign to me. I have done this type of diving a couple times and plan on doing more.My interest really lies in the capturing of images that capture my attention. If it is pretty or interesting or simply provokes some kind of emotion for me, I will take the shot.”Source Source 2
