Sea World Orlando
My go-to lens on this vacation was the 18-55mm (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR NIKKOR Zoom Lens). All but a very few at Sea World were taken with this lens. I’m sure I missed many opportunities for the 35mm f/1.8 and the 55-200mm zoom but I was keeping busy and the 18-55mm proved very versatile.
I’m experimenting with off-site ‘cloud’ storage since some sites want to charge a bundle when you store a zillion photos. (The nerve!) Kudos to Microsoft and their OneDrive cloud for providing inexpensive storage, for now at least, and the software coding allowing secure sharing without the cumbersome guest account requirement. Apple, Google, Flickr, et al might take note.
Boo to WordPress, Internet Explorer (Microsoft’s), and whatever else that has turned the photo ’embed’ from OneDrive into a mostly non-functional nightmare. Please use THIS LINK to SEE MORE Sea World pictures.
I trust the kiddies, and adults, are learning and appreciating our water-borne brethren whilst gleefully ogling the shows and rides. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and recommend it. I will expound a little further on the tourist megalopolis that is Orlando in future posts.
Completely, totally unrelated, I stumbled upon a couple of noteworthy quotes recently:
‘It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.’ ― Nelson Mandela (Quote found here.) I’m not a Mandela fan per se but he had a point here.
