We spent the afternoon going through the different rooms in the aquarium. We petted sting rays, star fish, parrots and sharks.
My favorite room in the Aquarium was the Jellyfish room. Aren't they just so pretty?
Later that night, we went to a carnival. It was such perfect scenery, with all of the flashing lights and people on rides. I was tempted to take my camera with me but I decided to leave it in the car. I wanted to have fun and enjoy the moment. To really live it.
Sometimes I get so caught up with taking pictures that I often forget to really take in my surroundings. What are your thoughts? Does this ever happen to you?
On this particular trip to the aquarium, I kept this in mind. I limited taking a lot of photos and only took pictures of the things that really intrigued me. The result? Better photos and more time having fun. I'm much happier now that I found a balance.
I had no idea people had the same thoughts as me until I read this post over at Sweet Symphanie. With that being said, I leave you with this quote:
(Taken from The Journals of Sylvia Plath.) Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone!
