California Academy of Sciences, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco

Our second destination in Golden Gate Park, the Cal Academy, is a place known and loved deeply by [personal profile] emelbe. I felt privileged to be taken on a tour of it by someone who delights in every inch and every angle of a place as jammed full of wonders as this.

[Image of green seaweed and multicoloured upside-down jellyfish. Tentacle colour depends on which algae they host.]


[Image of people in front of a huge window, with backdrop of reef swarming with tropical fish.]

These photos were taken with a mixture of new dSLR, old dSLR and HTC One V phone camera. I would be interested to hear which shot[s] people like best, without necessarily knowing the medium!
