Our most recent outing was to the Dallas World Aquarium in downtown Dallas. It is a bit pricey to get in but the variety of creatures to shoot is incredible, especially when you realize that this tropical paradise is inside of an old warehouse. I cannot imagine if they should ever have plumbing problems with all of these water features and the animals’ dependence on proper functioning.
So the crazy women… Lorraine, Kristen and daughter Courtney, Debbie, Tess, Carol and I carpooled into the city for another day of fun. This would be Carol’s last outing with the crazies before moving to the East coast. The fun started before we even entered the building. As we rounded the corner there was the most beautiful sax music echoing between the buildings. What a way to start our day and Tess was jivin’ with the music!
Even though we were traveling through the “tropical jungle” together, we all came home with very different shots. Tess was shooting with her 100-400mm lens, Carol and I were trying to use our flash units, and Courtney was learning how to use her “new” camera handed down from Mom.
Tess aced it when she captured this romantic photo of the waterfall. It is picture perfect!
Hard to believe this is inside an old warehouse in Dallas!
I think we all had the most difficulty shooting the underwater shots. It looks easier than it is. We raised our ISO to compensate for minimal light and tried to catch the action.
