mellow jello


Thought I would share some cool pics we took at the Vancouver Aquarium on our last visit... there are quite a few tanks there displaying jelly fish. They are so mesmerizing to watch, and such odd creatures... I could spend hours in front of these tanks... oooohhh, so mellow (yes, I am that easily amused). Not to shabby of photos for taking them through the thick reflective glass, huh?

Awesome photographs! Looks like you were in the tank. No reflection at all from the glass.

Great job of photographing through that heavy glass !
There is something very hypnotic about watching the fluid, gentle, rhythmic motions of jellyfish. Or just viewing aquariums in general is very relaxing and mesmerizing.

Oooh cool, those are some neat looking jellyfish!

Gorgeous photos Valerie. :)

I love watching anything swimming around in tanks :)

There is a great aquarium in Newport on the Oregon coast (where Keiko was living for a while :)that we used to go with the kids all the time.

I miss those easy summer days :)

Have a wonderful weekend, T. :)

I always find myself mesmorized by the jellyfish whenever I visit and aquarium, it's like they pulse.

Those are sweet, I was reading about a bunch of new sea creatures they've found recently. Woo! I wonder what else is hiding WAY down there.

I love watching the jellyfish ! Although we just got 2 goldfish and I think they are pretty fascinating too - I guess I am also easily amused ! LOL
