Travel Theme: Big

The Travel Theme this week is Big. I had posted some pictures last year for the Weekly Photo Challenge Big and did not want to repeat them here, so chose these two pictures taken at the Bronx Zoo in New York.

Travel Theme: Animals

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is Animals.  I recently posted several animal pictures for the weekly challenge Solitary here and thought of linking to that post, but then decided to try out the new tiled galleries.  All these pictures were taken at the Bronx Zoo in New York City recently.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

This week’s photo challenge is Solitary, and Cheri Lucas says “I love capturing a person in a quiet and often unexpected moment. These kinds of images can be reflective, mysterious, or even sad, conjuring strong emotions and stirring up stories in my head.”  I was thinking don’t animals also experience solitary moments, not only our pets, but those in the wild, and in the zoos.  Here are a few pictures I captured recently at the Bronx Zoo in New York.  It is one of the world’s largest metropolitan zoos, with over 600 species from around the world. The zoo comprises 265 acres of park lands and naturalistic habitats, through which the Bronx River flows.
