So I went home Mother’s Day weekend, and it was a whirlwind of photography! My mom is the one that actually got me into this – she gave me a Nikon D70’s for my birthday.
Friday we went to the Pittsburgh Zoo, and learned a very important lesson: get there as early as possible! We got there around lunchtime and had to battle… battalions of kids out on field trips. Not only that, but the afternoon heat had the animals taking a little siesta… and snoring lions, no matter how pretty, don’t make for good photographs.
