Bioshock: Swimming with the Sharks by Ex-Shadow Bioshock: Swimming with the Sharks by Ex-Shadow
Not swimming really, but it makes for a good title at least.

There's an awesome story behind this shot. The Georgia Aquarium of Atlanta has a special event during Dragoncon where you can purchase a ticket for Saturday night after their normal hours and dress up in costume. Obviously Bioshock was a perfect fit for this scenario, so Malinda and I wore Big Daddy and Big Sister to it. When we got to this tunnel we really wanted pictures in it...but so did everyone else, so it was pretty crowded. So our photographer hunted down the Aquarium manager and asked if we could possibly get the tunnel all to ourselves for just a few minutes. They loved our costumes so they agreed, and for 5 minutes the tunnel was blocked off from the public so that we could get this epic shot!

Major thanks to our photographer friend Joseph Chi Lin for not only coming out to Dragoncon for this photoshoot, but having the resolve to talk the staff into letting us use this tunnel exclusively. And a major thanks to the Aquarium staff as well!
