An hour at the zoo





There have been workmen repointing my building for the last 6 months, and sometimes they can get very loud. Earlier this week it sounded like they were dropping SUVs from a helicopter on the roof. Massive pounds and booms. At a certain point, I gave up on trying to get any work accomplished and decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and take a trip to the Prospect Park Zoo. I got there an hour before closing, but still got a few nice shots in. The final goldfish image is actually from the neighboring Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. By the time I got home, the workmen were gone and I could focus once again on work. Freelancing may mean more hours, but I do relish the freedom of being able to take off and go to the zoo when the mood strikes.

Great pictures, Steve. You manage to take successfully what I atempt to, unsucessfully.

B.T.W., this comment is apropos of your entire blog, not just "An hour at the zoo".
