Growing up in the Bay Area, my two favorite weekend excursions where to the Exploratorium and the Lawrence Hall of Science. Last year when we were visiting family up here we stopped at Lawrence Hall for a few hours, and I must admit, it wasn’t anywhere near as interesting as it was when I was 10. Yesterday we hit the Exploratorium and it was even more interesting than when I was a kid. All the old exhibits that I fondly remembered are still there and of course many new ones as well. I brought my cameras and both Penelope and I took photos, her with the 30D and the 85mm f/1.2 L lens and me with the 5D and the 24-70 f/2.8 L on my trusty tripod. Check out the full set of my HDR Exploratorium photos.
