While I usually do not take a full week off from work during the summer, this year I decided to. I wanted to spend time with my kids and do at lest one thing with them. It was a hectic week, with family in from all over the country, so taking one day out to spend with just my two kids alone was very precious to me.
We decided to go to our local zoo, Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, NY. Although it was hot and humid (and my little guy was a bit miserable due to both of these things) the fact the animals I really wanted to photograph were hiding in cooler spots, I think we accomplished what we set out to do. Eventually, we did have some fun. And we were able to get some pretty nice images. And little guy made a few “new friends.”
