Exactly three years and one day prior, on September 1, 2020, I visited the Seattle Aquarium with my friend Monica. This was during the pandemic, shortly after the government-mandated lockdowns were expiring. I was out actively stimulating the economy, but most other people were reasonably still concerned about the spread of COVID-19, so there weren’t many tourists there and we got to experience everything at a fairly leisurely pace.
A few days ago, on September 2, 2023, a different friend and I made another trip to the Seattle Aquarium while we were in town for PAX West. It was obviously a lot busier this time, but I also accrued three years’ worth of photography experience, so even though it was still dim indoors, I managed to get a lot more nice photographs.
Below are the best ones I captured.
