my son went to the philly zoo on a field trip. i went along b/c i hadn't been to the zoo since i was in elementary school. i'm not a huge fan of zoos - but i've come to terms with the idea that zoos are not evil places full of people who abuse animals. but actually it is full of people who truly care for the animals.
still - pictures like this one depress me.
he was so obviously depressed - i felt horrible gawking at him through the glass. why was his home all concrete and vents - while other primates were outside with live plants?
that foot........blows my mind
as i snapped this picture the flamingo's head went under water. i didn't want to capture that - so i took another when his head was above water.
ends up i like this shot more afterall....
