Under the Sea

That whitewashed background that you can't really see is Philly, my city!


Recently the BF and I took a little trip to the Camden Aquarium. When we first met, my boyfriend had never been to a zoo or aquarium before. I've quickly changed that as I fell in love with zoo visits and aquarium exploration at an early age. What is so amazing about aquariums is the glimpse they give you into an entirely different world. The fish and other creatures are so bizarrely different from what exists on dry land, and so eerily beautiful at the same time. The bright colors, camouflage techniques, and graceful movements are so inspiring. My favorites, hands down, are the rays for the way they look like they're flying through the water. Oh, and one of the best parts of this aquarium: the opportunity to touch rays and sharks, how cool is that? Do you enjoy aquariums, what are your favorites?

I find the color combinations so inspiring, I could probably design a whole room of the colors of one fish.

As a little girl, spending summers at the beach, I was super afraid of getting stung by a jellyfish. I've since gotten over my fear and learned to appreciate their elegant beauty.

Wouldn't you like to be a seahorse, just relaxing in the reeds all day?

Regrettably not the best picture, it was dark in the room, but such an amazing view of an octopus. Once, at another aquarium visit, I saw an octopus swimming around its cage, this was the most active I've seen on since.
