The Zoo

We went to the zoo last week. I saw a Reticulated Giraffe sticking its tongue out.

I also saw a Greater Kudu.

I even saw a Grant’s Zebra.

It was foggy almost all day. The sun came out only once.


The weather has been so wonderful lately, and the wildflowers that the girls planted last year are growing like crazy. This inspired Cadence and Aurora to go outside and take photos.

These flowers were the first to bloom.

I love this photo, the light is really exciting.

Cadence is also getting quite good at framing, I’m really excited about her progress as a photographer.

Tonight on the way home I setup my camera to take very long exposures and handed it to Cadence. She began snapping photos through her window and ended up getting some pretty amazing shots.

Like this one taken near Orinda, CA as we passed by a police car.

She quickly learned that she could move the camera to paint with the lights, which she did while taking this photo of the Bay Bridge.

As we neared home, she proclaimed, “I need more colors of light!” while frustratingly observing that most of the lights within view were either head lights and tail lights.
