Playing Hooky

My wife is on maternity leave for just a few more weeks so we decided to play hooky on a brisk Thursday afternoon and check out the National Aquarium in Baltimore. If you are ever in the area, I highly suggest it. Ticket prices are pretty steep, but if you're local you should consider the family membership. It'll save you some dough and supports a good cause. 

Sam (currently 2 1/2 months) had a limited experience there, having slept through most of it in the free baby carrier that the aquarium provided. He kinda looked like this Emerald Tree Boa. -->

Alex (almost 4) was a bit more adventurous and ran from tank to tank. He had his favorites, which included NEITHER of these two:

Big Scary Shark. (Latin: sharkus nightmarus)

Freshwater Crocodile

But, he's a trooper and had a great afternoon. And, since I wasn't working, I had no problem not getting the appropriate captioning information. If anyone knows the names of any of these, let me know in the comments!

For the gear heads out there. All the images were made with a Canon 5Dmk4 with the Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART, except for the emerald boa, which i made with an iPhone6 and the Snapseed app. They were processed in CaptureOne. I turned up the crunchiness a bit, to compensate for shooting through 2" thick aquarium glass.
