A Day At The Zoo (In Pictures)

I don’t pretend to be a professional photographer. I’m really not. I barely consider myself an amateur. But I love taking pictures, especially when I can point my lens at something relatively interesting. And a rainy afternoon at the Riverbanks Zoo was just the excuse I needed to go all Ansel Adams on you guys.

And so, I present to you my very first photo gallery, hosted by Abby Gabs. Enjoy.

Sri Lankan Fishing Cat




African Elephant


Juvenile Giraffe


Hamadryas Baboon


African Lion


Grizzly Bear


Red Kangaroo

They turned out great, didn’t they? But it wouldn’t be a true Abby Gabs gallery without a few candids…am I right?

Our zoo pals for the day, Steven and Arielle.

My favorite picture of the day. Brian = Buffet.
Hanging out by the elephants, enjoying a frosty beverage.
Well, I may never be a paid professional photographer, but I try. Somehow I’m not surprised that the funny pictures turned out just as good (if not better) than the serious ones. Suffice it to say, a good time was had by all.
Even if we were emptying rainwater out of our shoes by the end of the day.
Is there anything more comical than huge white trash-bag ponchos bearing the silhouettes of zoo animals? I think not.
