a breath of fresh air

with my youngest being 16
it's been
what feels like a lifetime
since I've been to the zoo
on Sunday
I'm not really sure why
I decided that was where I needed to be
I've never been to the zoo
by myself
I've always had my children
with me
to show me the way
wandered and watched and laughed
taking photos of my new friends
discovered that the zoo
at any point in your life
is an incredble place
to be
as long as you are surrounded
by anyone or anything
that can make you


  1. what fun! And really, don't we all have zoo pictures in our portfolio?

  2. I adore the zoo and haven't been in ages! Looks like you did an artist's date with yourself!

  3. Wonderful idea!! Giraffes are my favorite animal and I love the shot you got of one. Good for you to take care of yourself. I can feel the zoo calling me, now. Thanks for the inspiration.

    i so meant to tell you this...after seeing these photos a while back...yes i am very slow on the uptake... i suggested to my friend marcia (my photography buddy) that we go to the zoo for practice shooting. i cannot believe i never thought of going to the zoo for myself instead off for children....these are awesome shots and we are definitely going this summer!


**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
