Red Panda

Rosamond Gifford Zoo

This is the last weekend for the photo contest at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse. I’m hoping I can make it out again on Sunday. The forecast is for some sun in the morning changing over to snow and clouds in the afternoon. I’m thinking early Sunday morning will be a quiet time at the zoo and I’ll have the place to myself. Until then, here is one of the Red Pandas talking to his companions up in the tree…

Indifference

Patas Monkey, Rosamond Gifford Zoo

This is not one of the images I picked to process from my trip to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo last week. I thought because I did not capture the face or focus on the eyes (as I have read is the right thing to do) I passed this one in my selection process.

As I sat down to work on my images this one kept speaking to me. Every time I saw this monkey I felt something for him. Maybe it is the feeling of solitude or loneliness. Thinking back to my time in front of the exhibit I realized it was his indifference to the activity from the other monkeys and even for those of us looking through the glass. Maybe I’m attributing too much, maybe not…

Zoo Day

Rosamond Gifford 

Sunday turned out to be a great day.  I had checked the weather on Friday and planned to make a trip out to the zoo in Syracuse.  As frequent readers may recall each January the zoo holds a photo contest and I have been attempting to capture a winning image for a few years.  Typically, I forget about the contest and end up making a trip out at the last possible opportunity.  Usually I end up with crappy weather. Not this year!  I have enough time to make a couple more trips if I want.

I plan on having a larger post showcasing the images I was able to capture. My problem at the moment is my PC died. I believe the SSD drive which is my boot drive failed. I’m looking at options now so I ended up working on my tablet. Not my full compliment of tools but the original file was not half bad to start with.

I’ll update as I work out a solution…

Who’s First?

Melbourne Beach

Everyone was enjoying the sunrise on the beach the last day I visited. After capturing a few images of the colors before the sun crossed the horizon I switched lenses to my telephoto to see what I could find with the sandpipers and seagulls. These sandpipers were a little cautious of me at first but as long as there was not a lot of other movement on the beach I could get fairly close. The hardest part was getting them to stand still so I could focus… LOL.
