The sea, source of all life

While being in the Netherlands for my week vacation, I visited the zoo in Amsterdam. The city zoo was big. A part of the zoo was aquarium. I love aquariums. Walking around there, watching all the fishes and sea creature, is so calming. It is also very interesting to see all the different colors/patterns the fishes got. It’s rather amazing.

I wish that I someday will have a fish tank build in a wall in my livingroom. I know that’s probably not going to happen, at least not where I live now. Keeping a fish tank, is a lot of work. But it would be awesome. I would put a chair in front of the tank, sit down, watch the fish swim around and just let my thoughts wander off. It would be totally zen!

Photographing inside the aquarium was hard. The fish doesn’t stand still, the constantly swim around, so I got a lot of blurry photos. Still I managed to gather a handfull of photos that turned out ok.

Enjoy the colorful fishes and sea life.


The fish above is called a clownfish. The name quite fitting. Just look at all the different patterns and colors. It’s amazing that the nature has given us such a fish. I wonder why only half of the body is dotted and the rest looks like a ‘normal’ fish. The fish underneeth, is a lionfish. It got a rather amazing pattern too, don’t you think? The lionfish is big and not like a small goldfish.

Above: A pretty stripy fish. Lovely colors. Underneeth: NEMO! I found Nemo :) Seeing that fish now, makes me wanna see Finding Nemo again. We also saw Dory at the aquarium, but I didn’t get a decent photo.

There will come more photos from the zoo later. I have tons of photos, but they need to be processed first. I might divide it into two posts, because I took photos of nearly every animal inside the zoo. It would be a overload to post all at once! Stay tuned!
