Cleveland Natural History Museum - Part 4

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Here is the last set of photos from the Cleveland Natural History Museum that I shot back in April when Ivan and Elycia came up for Kevin's birthday. This bunch really doesn't have a particular theme like the others did, other than the fact these are some of my favorites. (I especially love the first one!)
I'm not sure what's up with the strange color casts in the last two but I really couldn't resist posting them, especially the last one. I just want to squeeze that little guy. He was so tiny, like palm of your hand tiny. I definitely squealed when I saw him. 

Now that the museum photos are all done I'll get to posting some of the daily life stuff I shot when my 60D was being repaired. I have so many to share!

Hope you're having an excellent day!

You can find all my other museum photos here - part one, part two, and part three.

All of the photos above were taken with a Canon T2 (my favorite and most reliable 35mm camera) and Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 that expired in 2010. They were developed at Discount Drug Mart which is the closest place to me that still does one hour photo that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

  1. Such cool pics! I wish we had cooler places like this near where I live in NoDak.

  2. I always love how museum lighting comes across on film. There's magic there. Love these photos!

  3. I love these so much! I collect bones & framed bugs and things. Someday I'd love to decorate some of my home like a museum. Maybe that is super weird, but I love the aesthetic.

  4. Love these! Especially the birds! I LOVE SANDPIPERS! Every year I go to Padre Island with my boyfriend's family, and the Least Sandpipers are our favorites, they are small and run so fast you can barely see their legs. We always squeel and make lil 'deedle deedle' noises as they run, we both plan on getting tattoos of one :) Yay!!!

    Looking forward to your other photos, always!

  5. Being a fellow animal lover, especially the baby ones, I wanted to share with you this funny little video I took yesterday. I know you will appreciate the cuteness!

  6. OMG THAT FOSSIL IS AMAZING!! Any idea what type of creature it was? It almost looked like a walrus from that angle, but that just doesn't seem right.

  7. Gotta love Cleveland :D

    I normally wouldn't do this, but as a long time reader I'd SO appreciate your help! :D Please go to my blog and read this post, I just need your help winning a HUGE contest in my life. I promise it'll be worth your time :D It's really easy too!

  8. I love the third picture - of the skull and also the bugs. PS. And the new header is AWESOME!! :)

  9. These are so cool! I love the big fish skeleton! Do you have any idea what the rock(?) with the green stuff on next to the skull is?

  10. I've really enjoyed the pictures from this museum. It looks like the sort of old fashioned museum that I just adore. I've been a sucker for skeletons, taxidermy, and dioramas since before I could remember; there is just something strange and magical about them!

  11. EEEEEEEEEEE! I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOU! that dimetrodon skeleton is so amazing and it's by far by most favorite dinosaur/synapsid! ;u;

  12. These photos are stunning! I've been looking up a lot of vintage taxidermy recently on Ebay (well insect taxidermy anyway)- I really think there's something beautiful about skeletons and insects.
