Photo Adventure: Southern California

21 Aug

Aprilly got married last weekend, so I cruised down to Orange County and adventured for a few days before the big event.

We went on a whale watch cruise at the Aquarium of the Pacific. All my pictures of the actual whales turned out fantastically unmajestic. I can’t explain why I like this silly photo so much but I do.

I finally got to see a space shuttle! It felt a little like this. In addition to the shuttle the California Science Center had a great exhibit on Pompeii.

I nerded out about space even more at the Griffith Observatory.

I loved the observatory. It’s like a temple to astronomy.

Despite, or maybe because of the smog, I love this shot of Los Angeles from the observatory.

We also ventured out to Catalina Island. I went scuba diving for the first time. It was amazing although I wasn’t able to take any pictures. I’m already dreaming of getting scuba certified.

I just can’t seem to stay away from Malibu Creek State Park.

P.S. I took one crappy picture at the wedding. It’s a good thing April hired an actual photographer.

    I love seeing “tourist” photos of SoCal. You went to all the best places. I want to scuba!

      My parents didn’t want to go backpacking for some reason.
