Takin’ on the Jellies

When was the last time you went to an aquarium? I vividly remember going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in seventh grade and being completely in awe of the jellyfish exhibit. I must admit, I did have a pretty big obsession with Spongebob, and yes, that could have been why I liked the jellies so much, but when you look at those guys, how could you not be intrigued? When my boyfriend asked if I wanted to go, I jumped at the opportunity to visit again (this time without a wind-up camera and a little more photography know-how) and was sucked into the infatuation I felt as an adolescent. I regretfully admit to elbowing a few adults (and maybe children…) out of the way to snap these photos and was ecstatic with my results. Take a look:

Okay, so the last one isn’t my best work, I admit. But tell me you can’t picture yourself jellyfishing for these guys with Patrick and that little square dude…
