Where The Wild Things Are

Happy Wednesday peaches, I hope your week has been sweet so far!! Mine has been peaceful and quiet. My daughter is on holiday, so we've been hanging around, though the weather has been a bit mixed. She loves animals and has her own zoo of them (toys of course - although she'd have real ones if I let her) and I'm planning on printing out these photos for her room that we took at the zoo sometime ago & then just decided to share them to give you a bit of insight on what I do besides being a mother :) My camera goes everywhere with me & I snap pictures of everything I see. I love animals, but going to the zoo is always bittersweet to me, I love that zoos are working to keep species thriving and alive, but at the same time I would love for them all to be able to run free in their natural habitats. I guess until we can lock down poachers and stuff like that, this is a way for them to keep existing. But, taking pictures of animals is one of my favourites besides people. Always full of expression and life. I hope to one day travel where they run free & capture them in wild abandonment. Well, I wish you a grand Wednesday, keep well & go wild!!

These two beauties above & below came right up to us and stayed for a while, it was an amazing experience even between glass to have them rub against our hands and want to get close to us. If I could have guaranteed they would not have eaten me or any one else, I was quite tempted to set them free ;)

I assure you, the monkey was actually sleeping and not anything else, such cute and pleasant creatures.

  19. I love going to the ZOO. It remings me of my childhood, when everything was so slow, so big and so wide. Now the world has shrunk a little bit, at least for me. ZOO is the place where I can eat ice-cream and candyfloss til my stomach starts to ache. I also prefer animals to run free in their natural habitat, but Im sentimental about zoos though. Have a great weekend dear!

  20. loveeeeeeee the black and white and the silhouettes.
