Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Memorable Events

This week, Ann-Christine has suggested Memorable Events as the topic for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. This is usually the time of year when I have a hard time coming up with fresh material so it’s nice to be able to go back into the photo files for this one, although I still prefer to share images that haven’t been used before. It’s always satisfying to know that a day’s shooting has been reasonably successful and last year I had some memorable moments at Brookfield Zoo when I was fairly confident that I’d come away with at least a few good shots.

During much of the pandemic, the gorilla enclosure had been closed so I cheated a bit with the first shot, capturing instead an image of the new statue that had just been installed near the entrance.

  1. Wonderful portraits of all those magnificent animals and bird. I love the seal(?) such a doleful expression, stunning eyes and beautiful coat but they are all lovely!

    • Thank you, Tracy! Yes, I love watching the orangutans. I often wonder what they are thinking about us, they have such fascinating expressions on their faces. And the African hunting dog would make a wonderful subject for your gorgeous mosaic creations.

      • It is bittersweet to see them, don’t you think? My friend does a lot of fundraising for the Orangutan Project. We may well be seeing the last of them, Sue.
        Since I am currently averaging only two mosaics a year, I’m not sure I’ll get that far down my to do list.

  2. Excellent portraits, Sue! You have caught them in some special moods as well – not just ordinary portraits, but with a soul. Love especially the orang-utans and the yawning (?) dog!

  3. Wonderful portraits Sue – those white Tigers (??) are gorgeous and the bear is unlike any I’ve seen. Do you know it’s particular species? Terrific choices for the week.
