A family trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I’ve mentioned the zoos versus aquariums thing before.* By visiting so quickly after visiting the Oakland Zoo, it was nice to really see and confirm the difference.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is both extremely local and puts on special exhibitions highlighting specific aquatic life in similar ways that museums do. The two exhibitions this time were about jellyfish and seahorses—two animal types which photograph very well.
Still, it was a rewarding trip and one which I always enjoy bringing my camera to.
