One Forgotten Bunch of Pics from (the start of) November

Just to keep with the blog topic of stuffing photos everywhere, I’ve forgotten to mention a pleasant trip to Kuwait Aquarium on one of these “not-summer-anymore-not-winter-yet” days.
For finally Abbas is big enough to actually comprehend all these fish and small animals they’ve got there and enjoy looking at them, and small enough to be sitting in carriage when tired, unlike my bigger lady. She on the other hand grew up enough to understand some of the narration about Kuwait’s old customs from a mini-exposition they had at the entrance to the fishy part.
I still (fondly, what a parent I am) remember the time in Newcastle upon Tyne when we visited an aquarium complex for a very first time with her; and she did burst in tears, afraid all those fish would die – by drowning.
Anyways, here we go – a test ride of my 77mm prime lens as well as some memories to keep. I guess I am a memories hoarder.
And one exercise panorama. (Expandable upon click!)







I’ve got a number of other yet unpublished photographs, but for now, this is more than enough. I reckon.

Going Fishy

Abdullah took us today to the Kuwaiti aquarium to have some fun, Dori mostly eventually. She loves to watch the fish, though she is scared of anything half a size of her or bigger, hence really refused to go close to a window where sharks were swimming.

The Kuwaiti aquarium is definitely bigger than the one we used to visit in Newcastle, naturally I guess – more money in this country, and the general love to have big things, buildings, areas.
For Dori it brought mainly one difference – at every fish tank was an interactive touch screen with games for children related to the actual creature in front of the screen, in most cases alive, in some cases stuffed, fossilized or dried up. My favourite from all was fennec fox, which I always like on pictures. In real it’s even much cuter than I thought.
