For Christmas, we got a wonderful gift: 2 tickets to the California Academy of Sciences! I’d never been, so I was so excited to go. It was an amazing experience — there was a huge aquarium, enclosed rainforest area, IMAX theater, and many more exhibits. The only downside was that it was incredibly difficult to photograph, because of the very dim lighting in the aquarium coupled with the direct bright overhead lighting that shined on everything else. But otherwise, I can’t wait to go again (and this time, see how my “new” camera can handle the same conditions).
