long beach aquarium

This weekend, Stanley and I drove down to Long Beach to visit the aquarium (finally). Originally I had planned on going myself on a weekday so I could bring a sketchbook and spend the whole day people and fish watching. But in hindsight, I don’t know if that would’ve been fun. The aquarium is pretty small, and there weren’t many places to sit. So I’m glad we went together :) I made it a personal goal for the day to get a bunch of pictures of fish faces, and I think I did pretty well. My newest lens (35mm) goes down to 1.8, and it makes a huge difference in low light. On the other hand, when I took higher aperture pictures outside, I realized how filthy my sensor is. I really need to go get it cleaned soon.

There were a crazy number of young kids at the aquarium on Saturday, possibly because it’s the last weekend before school starts. There were kids running around everywhere and strollers blocking all walkways. Seeing all the kids being kids made me miss CHAMPs, so I’m glad school is starting so I can start doing that again :)

Last night, I dreamt that I had a long scar running down the side of my cheek, and I was running around the mall with my Dad looking for a good concealer. Strange dream.
