I decided to go to the Horniman Museum today to check out the Aquarium (I know my life is just so rock and roll!) it’s pretty small and as a very disappointed little boy lamented to his father there are no sharks! But there are jelly fish, sea horses and blue frogs which I thought were pretty cool. There was one tank however that I wish I hadn’t seen…it was entitled english pond life and the fish in our native ponds get pretty big! Why is this an issue for me? Well, my photographer and I are planning a shoot at Hampstead Heath, and part of our plans include me standing either naked or wearing a wet white dress in one of the swimming ponds which we think will look pretty cool. I do however have a fish phobia which prevents me from swimming in the sea and going to restaurants where they serve fishes with their heads still on.
Now that I know what will be swimming in the water around me I’m really not sure that I can actually go through with it!
