We took the kids to the zoo today, and I had every intention of putting something up from the trip, but, based on past experience, I should know better. Every single time we go (which admittedly isn't all that often) I take a load of pictures and end up not liking any of them. As much as anything else I think it's because I'm not too sure what to make of zoos. On the one hand, the animals seem well cared for and aren't obviously distressed, but I can't help feeling as though the whole thing is an entirely unnatural phenomenon. And I think that the pictures I take reflect this ambiguity; i.e. my pictures are neither good animal portraits nor serious critiques of zoos. Hmmm ...
As for this shot: it was taken at roughly the same time as the day before yesterday's entry, but doesn't do quite such a good job of capturing the nature of twilight, hence I've put it in my photoblog category (the one I use for stuff that I'm not entirely happy with).
