Figured I would exercise yea ol' T2i at the aquarium - 18-135mm lens, all hand held..  We loaded up the family including Wonderpup (Guide dog in training) to check out the sites.
 
Couple lessons from the trip - take a tripod and a shutter release.  Using a timer is another alternative - good luck on that.   I had a bunch of shots that did not come out - it's a tough shot.  Florescent lights, darkness, contrast, moving subjects...one thing to remember is put the lens right on the glass and shoot a bunch.   Polarize lens might help, but it makes things darker.  Regardless I went for all aspects... If you're into bird shots there's plenty there too.  You can get really tight on the shots.
 
We rounded out the visit by hitting a Greek restaurant across Channelside.  Watching the cruise ship Paradise getting a fresh coat of paint we had some of the flaming cheese and gyros.   It was well worth the cost - about $9 for a gyro on the lunch menu.  I guess the smells and activities were too much for Wonderpup as he slept under the able the entire meal - he started to snore as well.

Stairs  (Funny - now I get why some dogs don't like to go down steps.)
 
 
I blew this shot - he was looking straight down the steps; at the "end" of the steps there's actually another set of steps, but he can't see them.  He has to trust that they will be there otherwise it's a 10 foot drop.

Color version - they are quite green, but the fouresnt light messes up the background
 
And yes they do have some fish - big ones at that...Wonderpup weighs in at about 72lbs so you can get the scale...
