90/275

Phriend and I had planned our weekly daytrip, this time we were off to Jenkinson’s Aquarium. Can I just say it was one of the most difficult places to take a photograph with any kind of clarity. It was dimly lit to say the least. We played with exposure, we played with shutter speed and I did the unthinkable and raised my ISO to 3200. This resulted in me, alone, taking 810 photos. Yes, 810! After uploading I deleted 588, after taking a closer look at them I was happy with about 29 of them, a little less than 3%. Was it a successful day? Yup, cause we had a blast!

It sounds like a successful day to me! I am so snap-happy that I always end up with tons of photos that get tossed.

The great thing about digital photography! You can shoot your heart out and just delete what you don't want. :)
