We did a little family trip to the Long Beach Aquarium (Aquarium of the Pacific) today, which was a lot of fun and with an adult to child ration of 1:1, just about right! They have a bunch of kid oriented areas, with the usually touch the fish stuff, but they also have a small bird santuary with a variety of parakeets that will drink from a small cup that you hold, a GREAT photo opportunity for the kids with the very colorful birds sitting on their little arms. Nice.
But I am a very big sucker for the jelly fish! As you can tell from this posted image, in color no less. As I think about it, this is really the one subject that I believe works best in color for me. I am so fansinated by these, I could just stand in front of the various tanks for hours. I almost forgot to take some photos today as well. Too bad that some great photo books have been made about Jellyfish, but I could do a series just to do it. Does that make sense?
I did make some images in JPG and RAW, but with the Canon G2, I forgot to adjust the ASA up to 400, thus the JPG turned out shaper and this is one of those JPG’s. very nice.
Next time I need to remember to bring the Canon XTi;- )
Best regards, Doug
