This was different and a lot of fun for me. I made a rare excursion to the big city to explore taking pictures of inside establishments for my website I've been spending so much time building: ProximityCast.
We made a point to stop at the location you'll find in the workshop for lunch which has a huge saltwater aquarium. The buffet was quite excellent as was the alligator tail appetizer. After lunch we moved to the bar where I had a piña colada for dessert and a sporting time taking shots at all the different fish.
I experimented with using flash and no flash, but I found the ones with flash came out best.
The ambiance in this place is awesome and I thought a fun and easy way to shoot some fish. If any of you are ever in this town, I'd recommend giving this place a try if you want to add some tropical fish to your portfolio.
I made an attempt to identify the fish in the picture. Wow! I found that quite tough. Maybe one of you might know what this fish is. If so, I appreciate you mentioning it.
Kind regards,
