  1. I went to gradeschool at The Avery Coonley School, in Downer’s Grove. Our mascot was the seahorse, because they move “Onward and Upward”! :-)

  2. They’re adorable and part of me wants to pet them, though I know it’s not possible and would probably be a bad idea! I also want to pet the picture because it’s lovely and -ehm- I’m kind of weird that way?

    When I learned about Web Content Management, we had to set up the structure of a site, in Drupal, about a random subject. I wrote about seahorses on the ground that they’re adorable! That is SO a valid reason when selecting a subject!

  3. Is that the aquarium in which Dresden fights the Denarians?

    This is bugging me. I’ll have to go check.

  4. Oh, I forgot to mention the Shedd! Did you see the Beluga whales? I visit them whenever I’m in the city.

  5. Do you have any tips on taking photos in aquariums? This is a really good photo and miles above what I’ve been able to manage trying to capture seahorses, sea dragons, jellyfish, etc.

  6. J. Andrews:

    Take a whole bunch of photos. One of them will likely turn out.

    Also, in this particular case, use a good camera (this is my Nikon d5100).

  7. Coming from the West Coast, I am irrationally weirded out by aquariums that aren’t directly on the actual ocean.
