Old-Fashioned Friday - Dolphin at Sea World

Welcome to the second installment of Old-Fashioned Friday. Today's photo is one that I took in August of a dolphin at Sea World San Antonio. One of the things you may be wondering is "Well Brian, why did you choose this photo?" To be totally honest, I don't really have a reason other than I have always liked this shot, and rather than work on something that has been done several times (like an old-style shot of the Alamo or of Ft. McHenry), I thought "when is the last time that I ever saw an old fashioned photo of a hungry dolphin"? And then I immediately answered my own question aloud with a firm "You have never seen that". (At that point people started to look at me strange for carrying on a conversation with myself, but oh well!). I love going to SeaWorld and shooting the different scenes there, and I believe it is going to open again in a few weeks. I need to get some closer shots of the killer whales, the penguins, and the shows, but there is just something about the dolphins that always draws me to shooting them!
