HDR Exploratorium


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.

    I have to agree, the Exploratorium just isn’t the same as it was when I used to visit as a kid. I remember there used to be this really cool exhibit where you could explore the city birds eye view by standing up in front of a large screen so it appeared you were actually flying. And nothing beat the tactile dome!!
    Now it seems the Exploratorium is just a bunch of open space with fewer exhibits and not as much soul. I wonder what caused it to go downhill so much? Or is it just that I’m older and not as easily excitable?

    Sorry I misread your post… I visited the exploratorium three years ago and my opinion was that it wasn’t very exciting or well kept. Perhaps it’s changed since then?
