I’d like to share with you some of the beautiful and exotic looking sea life I experienced while at The Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. I hadn’t been to an aquarium in years! I use to love to go to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago as a child. Going as an adult and photographer was a much different experience because, I was finally able to capture images of all the interesting sights that I can now keep forever. This was a very lovely facility full of enthusiastic people and I hope that I get the chance to go back very soon. My favorite exhibit was the color changing jellyfish. They were so strange, yet so beautiful to watch. If you’re ever in Las Vegas I highly recommend taking your family to check out this very cool exhibition.

After dropping my kids off for school last week I noticed a thick layer of fog rapidly moving in. Since I always have my camera on me I decided to stop off at the park before heading home to see what I could capture. It was dark, gloomy, rainy and foggy but I loved it! I thought about how eerily moody the scenery was. Each area of the park resembled a dense, creepy forest, or maybe the set of an elaborate Hollywood movie. I ended up staying for almost 3 hours, not only shooting but enjoying the view. I couldn’t believe my luck because, I was up so early that I had the entire park all to myself! I will admit, the silence mixed with the weather created a very spooky atmosphere.
Eventually the rain came in and started pouring down so I thought, “maybe it’s time to go?” “maybe I should stay and take some cool rain shots?” The next thing I know I see 2 huge stray dogs roaming around and not looking very friendly so I knew at that point the decision had been made for me! Shoots over! I packed up my camera and carefully drove home. Below are a few of the resulting images.

This way to early morning enchantment. To be continued…
Today was a very laid back and boring day…but the weather was very nice! An extremely mild temperature and a slight breeze for a change! I only wish the sun didn’t set so soon so that I could have enjoyed it longer.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
I’v been out in very rainy conditions lately searching for fall colors. To find these particular colors I didn’t have to go very far. All that was needed was for me to direct my attention downward. The cool thing about these photos to me is, I didn’t arrange these patterns, this is exactly how I found them in their natural formation. This further proves that the rain and gloom can’t hide nature’s beauty. There’s always something interesting to be found even on what most would consider a bad day.
