Brookfield Zoo

Our little family decided to take a day trip to Chicago and visit Brookfield Zoo. Ok, so it’s not exactly beauty in “the bend,” but this zoo was stunning nonetheless 😉

I’m not happy with the outcome of this picture color-wise but I couldn’t resist capturing their brand-new baby gorilla Nora and her mama. 🙂

This little lady was so friendly, she bent her long neck all the way down so I could practically kiss her nose. I loved spending time with her.

We didn’t have time to stop and take pictures of the architecture, which I was looking forward to, (next time!) but as we were leaving, the sky put on a beautiful show for us, so I took this one for my mama, as she recently developed an affinity for capturing steeples.

Spring has sprung

Spring is finally here! Though the snow was beautiful at times, we had way too much of it this year, and I’m not sad to say good-bye. Today was the first nice (and snow-free) day, so we headed to our local zoo. I took this opportunity to bring my camera and get to know it a bit better…
