Baltimore Trip


Well, Jeremiah, his wife Mariah, and myself took a trip to the Baltimore Aquarium and tested our respective cameras. Overall, I’m fairly impressed…But have my fair share of dissapointment as well. I was mostly unfamiliar with the exact functions of my camera so it gave me more than a little trouble with the odd artificial lighting and glass reflections of most of the aquarium. Fish turned out blurred and distorted far more often than not. The sheer light sensitivity however, reassured me that it was more my lack of expertise in the camera’s higher functions than a lack of capability as far as the camera was concerned. And in natural lighting, the Finepix S2000HD performed more than admirably. The dolphin show provided more than a few opportunities to test the high speed settings and I was pleased with the results.

These are just a few of my favorites. Eventually I’ll find time to post the rest.

  1. That random sicko guy looks whacked out on some drug. I don’t know what, exactly, but I’m thinking X?

    Nice photos! I’ll put some up tomorrow.

    My wife wants me to let you know it’s “Maria.”

  2. I LOVE the sun conure pic, they’re so adorable. The dolphin leaping over the ball looks so good it could be an advertisement.

  3. Wow those are some great photo’s!!! I think the birds are playing “mirror”. You always take such wonderful pics 🙂

    • They were so cute to watch; the top one started screeching, flapping his wings and pecking at the lower one, and the lower one started squawking back and worked his way up, forcing the higher one to move. I love parrots at play.

  4. Thanks for the comments everyone! I’ve got another pic of the suns that was less photogenic Ill put up later. I love em too; too bad they’re so loud or they’d be the perfect pet bird.
