I began the day today with a walk at Mesker Park Zoo with my friend/walking buddy, Nan. I didn’t take my camera because our goal was walking and I knew it would slow us down since I’d have to photograph everything I saw. However, I did have my iPhone, of course, so I took a few shots and processed them when I got home using some of the iPhonography apps and tools recommended by the fabulous Rad Drew when he addressed the Fine Art Camera Club recently. I’ve been meaning to do that, anyway, and had planned to spend today studying various photography materials, so mission accomplished!
Below are a few of the exotic animals we saw.
The autumn colors have suddenly become much more pronounced this weekend, and I was really feeling the need to get out with my “grownup” camera and take some photos of the foliage. I noticed in driving to and from the Zoo that the trees in and surrounding the cemetery across the road from the zoo were very striking. And there’s something about the dying of autumn and the commemoration of the dead that seems so sadly beautiful. So later in the afternoon, I returned to the cemetery and captured some images there.
