new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

chamomile for my cousin

chamomile for my cousin

every 5 meters there's a sign to not feed the animals. one sign said that an animal had actually died because it choked on something someone had fed her.

...and, sure enough, people were feeding the animals. i got mad and told off a couple of groups. i'm vocal like that.

my daughter decided to offer flowers instead of food -- one little monkey loved the game very much... he'd eagerly reach for each chamomile blossom, chewing on the first and then sniffing the rest.

as i left the zoo, i remembered that, sometimes they cage up the wrong primates.


  1. This instantly reminded me of Michelangelo's Creation of Adam. I hope you enjoy the irony.

  2. Zoos are (most of the times) the only way for children to be in contact with wild animals, but, at the same time, it can be cruel to watch all those animals in cages,it`s eartbreaking.

  3. @juventas, we were discussing with my daughter exactly that! i'm so glad it's clearly visible.

    viewers can make of it what they like :D
