A Visit To The Georgia Aquarium

Yesterday we spent a few hours at the Georgia Aquarium.  This fantastic aquarium is the largest in the world and is a leader of aquatic animal conservation.

The place is awe inducing— truly.  It is easy to forget how much life is actually housed in waters- both salt and fresh water.  I took about 200 photos and could have easily taken 200 more.

Here are a few:

If you are ever in Atlanta I urge you to visit the Georgia Aquarium.

Are you a fan of aquariums?  Do you have a favorite sea creature?


  1. You took some amazing pictures! I have not been to an aquarium since I went on a field trip while still in middle school. Very long time ago! I especially love your first picture and the picture of the frog, he looks so content sitting there.

  2. MY favorite is the frog. It’s eyes are just gorgeous and so feminine.

  3. Absolutely breathtaking pictures. Love your black silhouette photo….very artistic.

    I love visiting aquariums. We visited Seattle Aquarium over the holidays. It wasn’t very big, but pretty neat. My favorite sea creature is dolphin and my kids love stingrays and sharks (boys for you).

  4. Beautiful pictures of beautiful creatures!

  5. Can I PLEASE have that frog? Please? Bring him back for me. Nobody will know. When your plane flies over Texas, just shove him out the window. He’ll find me. I’ll be the crazy lady still decked out in her work out clothes with her hair slicked back yelling “Hey yal. I’m over yonder.” Okay. Please. Pretty please.

  6. Love your photos! Sea horses are my favorite for a few reasons: they’re all different colors and shapes, the MALE carries the babies, and they mate for life.

  7. What a great place to have nearby, with so many great things to see. It looks like a fun way to spend the day!

  8. Aquaraniums are a ton of fun! I love the first picture you got. Shots like those are always great. My personal favorite: The Penguins always. I could stand and watch them for hours =)

  9. Oh these are so wonderful , the green guy is my fave! Beautiful photos, just other-worldly!

  10. I love aquariums, such a great place to think, & see beautiful creatures. gorgeous photos1

  11. I love aquariums! When I was little I had a particularly fun encounter with some beluga whales at Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium and promptly decided that I wanted to be a marine biologist when I grew up. 😉 Your pictures turned out beautifully!

  12. We were in Atlanta last summer & stopped off at the Atlanta Aquarium & LOVED it. Especially the room where you could watch the whale sharks? Best aquarium I’ve ever been to.

  13. Ooh! I love the aquarium! We had the chance to go to Seaworld a couple weeks ago, and it was just so awesome seeing all the fish, and sea turtles, and starfish… and, and, and!! : )

  14. These are amazing. The first one is my favorite for sure.

  15. Aww the lion fish! He’s so cute! I love going to aquariums! Now I’ll have to visit this one for sure if I ever get out of the airport of Atlanta!
