Photo a Day July: Day 9 – Zoo

Not quite the zoo I took Penny for a wander around Chester Zoo this afternoon. It’s great being a member as I can just pop in whenever I want. We got there just as all the school parties were leaving and it was quietening down for the day so I got to just wander and zone out for a while. Unfortunately I forgot to take my camera, so I decided to re-enact our visit at home using Penny’s ELC Noah’s Ark animals. I would like to reassure readers that I do not have a giant baby, nor did she try to pick up an actual lion or giraffe during our visit.

I tried out both my lenses (18-55 and 55-200) and several heights to get the best shot. This photo was taken using the 55-200 lens. I’m not sure if the sun was possibly a bit too bright as Penny looks a bit overexposed compared to the rest of the shot.
