Monday Morning Attitude

It’s Monday morning, my least favorite time of the week. Today’s Foto Fix reflects a fairly common theme among my co-workers. Weekend’s over, we start work far too early, and could use another few hours sleep. I took this photo Saturday at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park near Escondido, California. The tigers are brothers from […]

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

(18 photos in gallery) I visited the San Diego Zoo Safari Park on Sunday, arriving near opening time of 9am. I was glad for that as the day quickly became far to hot for the animals to be active and for me to be walking about! It was a very enjoyable morning, though, and I […]

I see it’s Saturday!

This photo was taken at the San Diego Zoo last Saturday, as I spent a wonderful day wandering among the animals. I believe this beautiful bird realizes it to be Saturday, not a work day for me, and therefore a favorite day of the week! ~SueBee

It’s All Happening at the Zoo

(18 photos in gallery) I was in complete agreement with the Simon & Garfunkle song “It’s All Happening at the Zoo” yesterday, as I visited the San Diego Zoo for the first time in decades. Kat and her boyfriend, Cameron, gave me an annual pass for the Zoo and associated Wild Animal Park at Christmas. I finally […]

Los Angeles Zoo Holiday Lights

Celebrating Kat’s 25th Birthday this past Sunday was a blast! Kat’s older sister, Angelika, bought tickets for the L.A. Zoo Holiday Lights. The only animals to be seen were Santa’s reindeer, and from off in the distance, we saw an elephant. The rest must have been in bed, or not part of the holiday tour […]

To celebrate our 2 year anniversary, my boyfriend Cam and I visited the San Diego Safari Park! The highlight of the day was seeing the baby cheetahs! They’re the cutest animals ever! We also saw a baby gorilla, baby giraffes, and a baby elephant…was our lucky day! ~Kat (pics by Kat)

Focusing Through a Cage…

…or, Learn Something New Each Day… or, Did He Teach That in Class? Those are a selection of titles appropriate for this article. I visited a small, local zoo recently, the Santa Ana Zoo; my first ever visit there. Kat had been earlier this year and shared some of her shots in an article titled Monkeying Around. While the zoo has a […]

Photography at the San Diego Zoo

My boyfriend Cam and I visited the San Diego Zoo again recently, and ended up buying an annual membership! What’s awesome about the membership, is we’re given access to both the Zoo and the Safari Park in Escondido anytime, all year round! This time around, we visited specifically to see the Koalas and Pandas that […]

The Hidden Zoo

Spontaneously went out with a friend one day last week, and discovered the absolutely beautiful Irvine Regional Park. Despite all of my exploring in the area, I’d never heard about this hidden gem before. It’s home to a railroad, horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, and a zoo! The zoo at this park is very small, and […]

Monkeying Around!

Took a spontaneous trip to the Santa Ana Zoo today. According to their website, as a requirement of the zoo’s founder Joseph Prentice, there are 50 monkeys on the grounds at all time! Unfortunately, I was unable to capture pictures of ALL 50, but I did get a few shots 🙂 Monkeys have always been […]

Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!

To celebrate our Anniversary, my boyfriend Cam and I went to the San Diego Zoo to snap a few pics…and by a few, only 1,600 combined 😉 But really, when you’re surrounded by so many amazing animals, and have a turbo lens, how could you take less?! What a place! I haven’t been since I […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
