Rain Rain Go Away

Sometimes I take photos that I know won't be published.

On this given occasion I had just spent an hour documenting the Mystic Aquarium's newest juvenile penguin's first swim, so when I spied this moment between the aquarium's Beluga Intern and one of the whales, I knew another aquarium-related photo was not going to find space in The Day, but I also knew it was too good of a moment to pass-up.

Hannah Tuuri was playing peek-a-boo with Juno, hiding behind her umbrella and then popping-out to get a squeal from the whale.

I enjoyed the moment, which on a rainy Tuesday was not being witnessed by very many visitors, and was happy to make a picture of it.

The only thing left was to find the time to write and post my thoughts.

A Catch for the Ages

Some photos mean nothing until you get some history.
