It’s been a very long time since I have posted on this blog as most of my effort has been going into my travel type blog at www.imagesofapples.com and to be honest, I haven’t really done much photography that I would consider good enough to include on a photography blog.  However, I recently went on a road trip through Southern California and Nevada because Apple gave it’s employees the American Thanksgiving week off.  During our trip I took a bunch of landscape photos which I will probably post later, but for now I want to talk about animals.

One of the stops on our Road Trip was to the San Diego Zoo and I lugged my 5D with battery Grip and 70-200mm lens all day to get some interesting shots of animals.  I have always loved shooting animals and so this gave me an opportunity to get unnaturally close up.  I would have loved to see them in the wild and in their own habitat rather than in enclosures, but I will take what I can get for now.

I got a lot of photos I was happy with and they are available here: http://flickr.com/gp/mseliske/r9Cgeo/ but found below are some of my favorites.

As mentioned in a previous post, I am in California for an internship, so the scenery is a little bit different from what I am used to in Waterloo.  I have always said that I don’t have the eye for landscapes and that I enjoy portraits much better so i am not necessarily as proud of these photos as some of my other ones, but I try.  I will probably have a few more random adventures in landscapes and urban photography that I will post in the future, but since I don’t feel as skilled at these types of photos, I tend to procrastinate when editing them.
