Just the other month I was talking with my 3 year old about his favorite animals and what he thought his siblings favorite animals were and right then I realized… He had not been to the zoo yet! I felt this need to take my little guy to the zoo! I found out one of the moms in our homeschool group was planning the trip already so we were set to go, just had to wait for the date to come.
I was so excited to be able to take my kids to the San Diego Zoo this year. I even had my photography students meet us there for our field trip.
We were counting back and realized that it had been 5-6 years since we had been to the SD Zoo so it was a new and fun experience for most since the younger ones didn’t remember and the older ones had fresh eyes and a higher perspective. 😉
As I’m sure you already know, black and white photographs are what I love. The simplicity, the detail, the mystery…
We ended up by the gorillas at the perfect time… lunch time! That was fun to watch their personalities come out. This one had his back to everyone while he enjoyed his lettuce.
This one went a ways off to enjoy some alone time while he ate.
Hippos are so relaxing to watch
I think giraffes always have this relaxed, slightly annoyed look on their face.
One of my students letting my little guy take pictures. They’re a fun bunch to hang out with. 🙂
Since we were there during the month of October, toward the evening they were getting ready to start their Boo-Fest and there were bubbles floating up toward us as we were crossing over one of the bridges.
Did I meantion we left at 6 in the morning and got home at 9pm? Well… It was a Full. Fun. Day.
Looking forward to meeting you and telling your beautiful story!
