monday monologue: busy weekend


Friday
We didnt 
go to the


after the excess 
of 
annoying 
whining 
little 
brats 
in the 
adjacent 


 I do not understand 
how 
DAY CAMP 
group 
with at least 2 adults 
to every child 
could not 
remember 
to walk down the 
narrow stairs in the 
Tropic Zone
keeping 
RIGHT
had they 
maybe 
we and a lot of others 
wouldnt have had to wait 
as long 
as it takes 
a slow moving frieght train 
to cross 
urban RR tracks
and 
what ever happened 
to letting other people 
stand close 
enough 
to get a photo 
of an animal 
without
your 
child 
in it?



I had 
to 
settle 
for 
 paws 
and 
an awkward shot
of this 
adorable 
because 
a child 
refused to stop
 'petting' it through the glass
 insane 
seriously
then her father
 - a man of about 15 ft in height - 
stepped 
into 
ToonMan's shot of same sleeping leopard
 ToonMan is five nine
on a good day

(that's his waiting for me to take a photo look)

I wish 
those 
kids 
could have 
seen 
this



Maybe they'd have stepped away from glass

Nevertheless 
I got some got pictures, 
the newer new lens 
(18-300mm) 
its heavy, 
oh my is it ever, 
but 
it takes insanely 
gorgeous 
photos
so I am thinking its worth its weight


Saturday
Errands and beautification 
in 
preparation 
for 

Sunday 
a visit 
from my old friends/Blisters 
and 
a new friend blogger 
(Reena)


we 
wanted 
to have lunch at 
but there was a bit of a wait 
so 
we went to the GreenFlea 
and 
wandered 
then 
we wandered 
the Farmer's Market 
before heading 
to a long lovely lunch 
of non-stop talking 
about what? 
cameras, blogs, travel, spouses, gossip

Thanks for sitting through the monologue
I promise to share more zoo photos
