Orcas, Sea World, California, 1980-1981
These are pictures that I took in 1980 and 1981 when I visited Sea World, California several times per week throughout most of the year on my "Gold Pass" as they called it then. Kotar and Kasatka figure prominantly, as they were in the Whale and Dolphin Petting Pool and available for the public to freely interact with. Several months after their stint in the petting pool, they were moved to Shamu Stadium to begin their training. I had three rather primitive cameras at the time, so image quality is mixed, at best. Some came out better than I had hoped, after scanning and some clean-up on Photoshop. All of these images were taken by myself.
