A few weeks ago we went on a trip to the Toronto Zoo. It's a big place, with lots of walking and fresh air! I, of course, brought my Holga along for the trip! I felt a little out of place, with everyone else walking around with their digital point and shoots, and the other remainder had big SLR's with huge telephoto lenses. I was crouching down, balancing my holga on random things, and changing film in strange places. It was a lot of fun!
It was a cool day, rain was looming and a lot of the animals were either not out, or sleeping - but here are a few photos from that day, and there are more to come! I will try and post the rest of the set tomorrow.
Looking into the baboon habitat - a glass covered viewing area with a small ledge - bird silhouettes painted on the glass, and a child stepping up on the ledge to get a better view. I knew I'd get the silhouette effect when I took this, but it turned out very mysterious looking! I've entitled it "Wonder".
Along another side of the baboon area, this guy/gal came right up to the glass, where I did the crouching and balancing mentioned earlier and shot in bulb mode because I knew with the low light and cloud cover, I'd need it. I think I'm getting good at holding a steady hand! Who needs a tripod?
Snapped this shot quickly, before the parents could come break it up! They all wanted a look. I don't know any of them, I just thought it was cute.
That's all for today! Come back tomorrow for the rest.
And don't forget this Saturday is World Toy Camera Day!!
