I spent the afternoon on this day off from work at the Bronx zoo, a place of which I've been a member for over 25 years. However since moving to Staten Island over 20 years ago I hadn't visited it in all that time until last summer. I discovered that much is the same and familiar, though even more has changed and improved, and a bit I'd forgotten. While I was here I wanted to capture some of the improved or forgotten on film.
Heading my way to the aquatic bird house after visiting the Butterfly Gardens, I made a right turn upon reaching the Dancing Crane cafe. Looking up ahead at the road before me, I saw the Zoo Center building, and liked the view. So I camped out for a few minutes to take some shots, waiting for a nice grouping of visitors that would compliment the scene. I didn't want too many people nor too few. And it would be nice if they were spread out well from foreground to background. And like the saying goes - if you know what your looking for your more app to recognize it when you find it.
