I’m back home now, after a bit of a whirlwind trip around the country. My last few days in Chicago were lovely, just like my first couple.
David and Carrie are excellent hosts and always keep me well-entertained and well-fed. I didn’t take a single photo at any of the restaurants we went to. I’m a very serious eater and it’s hard for me to wait and even harder for me to remember to photo before I dive in. Instead, I have for you the Shedd Aquarium:
I must also add that it is really extraordinarily difficult to make good photographs at an aquarium. First, it’s always quite dim. Second, the glass and the water do the most horrible things to autofocus and angles. In the photo below, this incredibly creepy giant spider crab looks like it’s on television or something. No, it’s just the refraction and things making it look strange. Very difficult to pull off good photography in an aquarium.
