I got my film developed today, the lab did 4 rolls in an hour and a 1/2! I was so excited to get them on the same day I turned it all in.

These are from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. That little cyclone in the second photo (diptych) are little anchovies. I spent a good 30 minutes just staring at them follow each other in circles. You can really spend your days here just staring into fish tanks.

We watched the otters get fed- they float on their backs and eat fish from their bellies! We also sat and watched a ‘kelp feeding’, where a guy in an Oneil wetsuit, scuba dives down into the kelp garden depths and feeds the sealife. I didn’t want to leave but realized we were there for 4 hours and needed to eat dinner.

I have a lot more photos to share, which i’ll get up soon. Have a great Wednesday.

    The aquarium photos just made me squeal. Did you squeal when you were there? I would. Dave and I area headed back to San Francisco in October for a wedding and if we don’t make it to the aquarium this time (I’ve been to San Francisco almost a dozen times and have never been!) I will shed tears. I anxiously await the rest of your photos!

    I was first amazed by that swirl of fish you were able to capture. Incredible. But then secondly amazed by Ken Peterson – on top of his blogger-outreach game!

    We only drove through Monterey when I was up in that area, but clearly this deserves a return trip.
