Today we begin our publication of photography with the work of writer and photographer Nicole Steadman. We look forward to posting photos that inspire and transform everyday moments.

Nicole took this picture on a family trip to the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco. She is drawn to nature photography, be it in captivity or the wild, in both urban and rural environments. This image could have been taken during a dive off the coast, but in reality it is in an aquarium in a major urban city.
