One LONG weekend, three shots (Aug 12 - 15)

I took loads of photos during our weekend activities. This weekend actually started on Thursday in Glen Rose, TX.  We took a road trip to Fossil Rim, a drive through, Safari type park and then visited Dinosaur Valley.  The kids really enjoyed both and were even quite daring in their interactions with some of the animals. Here's witness to how they fed some...


I do believe this challenge is improving my skills.  I'm trying different angles, different lighting and really stretching myself to get better shots. The kids really wanted the giraffe to poke his head through the car. That wasn't possible this trip because we didn't take my car.  Granny's van doesn't have a sunroof, so they tempted the guy to stretch over the van to the other side for his treat. This is the resulting shot...



Ashleigh's best friend has an awesome mohawk that she striped last week.  Ruben resembled the zebras and I tried and tried to get a picture of the two together for compare & contrast.  Due to lighting issues it didn't work out.  This shot does however, show off the effects and you can see what I mean with the hair...

I love that giraffe shot! Awesome picture perspective and the way the sun is just peeking out is wonderful. Ashleigh was certainly brave; don't know if I would have done that. And Ruben, my goodness. Very cool do!
