Fish for dinner

Yesterday I was in Denver all day to see various clients and to do a portrait shoot. Afterward I had dinner with some old friends (and a couple of new ones) at the Denver aquarium. The restaurant there features an enormous, 150,000 gallon aquarium filled with an amazing array of specimens, including five different species of shark. As you sit there at your table next to the aquarium, you're mesmerized by the schools of large fish swimming endlessly to and fro. Jenn remarked that it's the quietest restaurant she's ever been to. Everyone is so busy watching the fish, they forget to have a conversation! Small children, especially, seem to fall under the spell very easily. We were seated next to a family with two toddlers and a newborn, and never heard a peep from those kids!

Unfortunately, during dinner some of the sharks decided to attack and eat one of the large fish. Oops! Oh well. As our waiter said, it's the nature of the beast.

Beautiful! It's hard to imagine sharks in Denver, but it would be cool to have a meal there. As long as those sharks stay on THEIR side of the glass!

What a gorgeous view to enjoy while you eat, except for the shark incident!
