The zoo...






i love animals, but I hate to see them at the zoo. i just want to cry seeing them in a little man-made space... no freedom... no lives... everything is just wrong about caging them. well, what can you do when you have kids! they love to go there, it's fun and exciting! that where my son and i went today. he had lots of fun while i took some sad pix of the animals. polar bear staring at the sky and cried, monkey hiding in the cave, zebra just plopped to the ground, hippo was restless from all the kids yelling, gibbon was begging for popcorn...

I can't believe these photographs - they are just stunning! WOW! Such beautiful shots. I absolutely LOVE the polar bear shot. I almost thought they were fom a book. Are you a photographer? I've taken lots of pictures but they've never come out like yours. I would buy a book of these if you had one!! They are better than great!!

thanks for the comments :) i'm a wanna be photographer, actually. i love taking pictures of people and animal...though i have no eye at all for landscape and buildings. i used my very old digital camera, olympus-camedia c-2020 z for shooting. they're in color, so i had to changed them to b&w in photoshop. i love b&w photos... i wish my camera could do that... again, thanks for great comments! you make me wanna go out there and shoot some more ;)
