So, I bought myself an underwater camera.
Just kidding. (I wish.) Actually I just went to the Aquarium of the Pacific. I have wanted to get myself an underwater camera ever since I lived in Hawaii five years ago, but since I don’t live there any more I can’t really justify the expense of it. So this was the next best thing!
I had an absolute blast wandering around the aquarium snapping endless photos, struggling with the low light but managing to nab some fantastic shots anyway. It’s hard not to when these creatures are SO DAMN BEAUTIFUL. (But to put it into perspective I took exactly 1,011 RAW photos and these were the ones I was most happy with.) My favorite images are the jellyfish; they are so graceful and ethereal and magical and I feel peaceful just watching them.
