A Downtown Day

Posted: January 2, 2015 in Ramblings

We took the time today to go to the Seattle Aquarium, since that’s always a good indoor activity.  Here is my best indoor photo, taken with the HX50V.

I don't remember specifically what aquatic life is in this photo.

I do remember the name of the wildlife in this photo.

Afterwards, we went to a pier restaurant called The Fisherman, where we sat for lunch.

Ding #1:  Prices were outrageous for a drop-in lunch.

Ding #2:  After 10 minutes, no one had come to serve us (although the hostess had seated us and knew we were there).

We left and rode the Great Wheel.

Strangely, none of my city shots from the top of the wheel came out well (possibly because the glass enclosures are tinted), but this one below looks pretty good.  I had to overexpose it in post-processing because his face looked so dark.  This is the only full-face pic of The Man I’ve been able to get recently.  Usually he holds his hand up (sometimes in a rude gesture) in front of his face, when he knows I’m trying to take a photo.

Man, I love that man.

Man, I love that man.

So, after the lunch debacle, we simply came home and went to the pub.  When we got home, there was a box of yarn on the porch!  What an awesome day.
