I went to the zoo. I got lots and lots of pretty pictures. It was my first visit to the zoo with a DSLR camera. It was my first visit to the zoo after three digital photography classes.
I think it was my first trip to the zoo that I really found the beauty of the animals. It wasn’t about the display or how real it looked. It was about so much more than their pen and their antics.
I saw colors and shapes, reflections and texture. I saw lighting, profiles, and eyelashes. Details I hadn’t seen before and I realized….
there are a LOT of birds at the zoo every animal is a great capture.
This week You Capture from my idol Beth Fletcher has gone pink and pink is sooo sooo lovely.
I have girls. Three of them. We LOVE pink!
I am sharing my photographs from the zoo. These are the ladies (and gents) that – I think – wear pink the best.
I have many more photographs from the zoo, but for now I’ll leave you feeling pink.
Lucky for me, I have ANOTHER field trip to the zoo for photography class this weekend. With the start of another class – Wildlife Photography – I am excited to get to clicking. It is amazing how different a trip to the zoo is when you are looking through a viewfinder.
Also this weekend, we are celebrating a brand new seven-year old’s birthday at the movies and having an all-girl sleepover with her cousins. Molly turned the lucky seven this week! I think we’ll have lots of pink and lots of fun. I can’t think of a better way to do it than with family that lives close, and girl cousins close in age. Funny thing is? Jason will be outnumbered by a ratio of 10:1 (if you include dogs). He will need a poker night after this. Ha.
Have you been to the zoo lately?
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
