Hi Everyone. We have been very busy since we have arrived home again. It sure is nice to be home but it has been extremely busy trying to get caught up with everything. I can't quite manage it- there is always so many distractions like watching the bridge team tryouts on the computer this week. However, there is always time for more photography so I joined a local photography meet up group that meets up a the zoo every couple of weeks. The first meeting was on Tuesday- in spite of the coolish weather. The group concentrated on photographing the Gorillas and the Hippos.
I It wasn't easy to take pictures of the gorillas since we had to shoot through dirty glass. I plan to go back again soon to practise on the gorillas again. Good thing I bought an annual pass because I plan on going there often.
A friend of mine suggested converting this image to black and white and sent me a sample of what it could look like. I thought he had a great idea so I converted it. I think I actually prefer this image in black and white. What do you think?
A lot of the time I just watched the monkeys instead of taking pictures. They are so entertaining.
It was also fun watching the hippos. As a bonus, they were much easier to take pictures of -no glass.
Just like Maggie and Katie, this one likes carrots.
