A jellyfish I saw last week while having breakfast on the pier outside my house in Lofoten. 

David J. Michael’s guide to breakfast-table photography.

  1. Move to the scenic Norwegian coast.
  2. Save a jellyfish’s life by flipping him back in the water, then discover that he’s an enchanted jellyfish with powers of speech and moral reciprocity.
  3. Wait for a morning when the water is glassy and still.
  4. Call in the favor the enchanted jellyfish owes you by asking him to float in a perfect line with the opposite mountain and a buoy.

It’s that simple, really.
