Today I decided to take a little trip down the road to Woodland Park Zoo. It's a quickie car ride away from my house and while I was feeling a little lethargic, I wanted to get out and photograph something different. I've been boxing myself into shooting music and people for the last few months and it was time I stretched my legs a little.

I'm conflicted about Zoos and caging, but all the animals I was able to capture seemed pretty content, if not a bit bored. I realized when I was editing afterward, that capturing their personalities is a lot like photographing people. They may have different ways of acting and reacting that we don't understand but emotions are read the same. Ya learn something new every day, right?
