Pacific Of The Aquarium

Pacific of the Aquarium is located in Long Beach, CA. I went there two weeks ago as I got a free admission for being a participant at a half marathon in Long Beach that I did on October 10, 2009. This aquarium is a great place to visit if you love all animals, particularly if you are very interested in marine life, oceanography and anything related to this subject. This was my first time visiting this aqaurium, so I had a nice time and I learned a bit about some of the marine animals.

I love looking at jellyfishes!

Hmm, I'm having trouble "Finding Nemo".

More photos can be seen at:

A few years ago, I visited the Shark Reef Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. At the time, I only had a point and shoot digital camera. The camera wasn't really good at taking photographs in low light such as in an aquarium because the maximum ISO was 400, so trying to photograph anything in the aquarium wasn't fun and a lot of the photos came out blurry. Now that I have a DSLR camera and the maximum ISO is 3200 (including a feature called "image stablization"), making it great at photographing in low light, I was thrilled that I got to take photos of jellyfishes! I'm very fascinated with jellyfishes because they are beautiful creatures to look at.
