Jellyfish at the Georgia Aquarium

    Newer Older

    We took at brief trip to the newly opened Georgia Aquarium in downtown Atlanta. It's amazing. Thanks to Nani and Coops, the whole family has season passes to the largest aquarium in the world. Really.

    The first real fishy experience was in the "Tropical Diver" section, where there were these wonderful and elegant jellyfish floating around. I'm so amazed by how this shot came out. I really thought it was going to be all blurry, but somehow I was able to keep the camera still.

    I love this shot.

    (By the way, NO touch-up or color correction was done on this shot. What you see is what you get.)

      We did, but they (there's two of 'em) move so slow that by the time I took our shots (see in my photostream) they were on the other side of the tank (which is HUGE, by the way). We plan on going back many times this year....

      Congratulations! This wonderful image is currently #1 Flickr's most interesting photos for 06 February 2006. (It is on page one of the calendar view.) Would you please add it to the Interestingness pool? It would be a great addition!

      The colors are gorgeous, and the children's hands express joy and wonder.

      did you see this made the "flickr interestingness" for feb 06?

      Thanks, mimbrava, for pointing this out to me. I went ahead and included it to the Interestingness pool.

      poppytalk, I had no idea about this, so it was a rather nice surprise to see mimbrava's comment about it today. Geez, I didn't even know about the Flickr calendar. Pretty cool, though!

      And thanks, guys, for all the nice comments! I really appreciate it.
