We visited the zoo again this weekend to check on the baby elephant. Unfortunately it was nowhere to be seen, but a few other photo opportunities presented themselves.

Wow - lovely shot! Nice b&w work!
Right to my likeys smile !!
Good B/W with soft DOF. Has a strong narrative sense of isolation & loss.
