While we were in the Outer Banks, we went to the Elizabethan Gardens. It was such a great day for it, too! It was my first warm day of the year, and I couldn't have thought of a better way to spend it:
I set my camera on a self-timer and set it to take 3 consecutive pictures. The first pic (the one in color) actually turned out to be a candid shot! Funny what a camera can catch when you don't realize it's snapping pictures yet...
For the second picture, I couldn't let myself crop out the beautiful brick pathway! I think changing to B&W really made it stand out more too.
Once we left the gardens, we thought we'd stop by the aquarium. Lucky for us, a little construction gave us a discounted admission! It was refreshing to be in the aquarium practically alone, I can't recall the last time that's happened. I loved being able to stand with my nose pressed against the glass like a little kid, and then NOT have a little kid shove in front of me to do the same!
I wish the sharks didn't swim so fast... I wanted to get a picture of his big sea-green eyes!
And the prize picture of the week (in my opinion at least!), goes to Dan, who captured this mesmerizing moment in time:
I love that you can see all the trails from the sharks and fish!
