A Day Without Sunshine

So when you work a minimum of 9 hours a day, 5 hours a day on the weekend, and are trying to get together the resources to start your own business, and want to do project 365, something falls to the wayside. Unfortunately it was the project 365 posts. I was able to sit down for 2 hours the other night and edit photos from a day at the zoo, so we had a wonderful assortment of pictures to use to get caught up on the photos, so even though I haven't taken a photo every day, when I go to the zoo and take 200+ photos and end up with 15 edited photos that satisfy me (though I'll admit, towards the end, I wasn't nearly as picky or artistic as I usually am when it comes to editing and experimentation with photos) So without further pomp and circumstance, hopefully I can get within a few days of totally caught up here.

Big T and the big T. Around the Zoo in Syracuse in a couple places there are these little statues, this one wasn't dirty, it was just worn out from everyone doing the same thing that we did. Try and sit on it and take a picture. This one was too tall for us, but as you'll see below, the tallest of our group didn't have the same problem at the pachyderm pen. 

Warm Rock reprieve. So upstate NY, mid-January at the Syracuse zoo. who would have thought that there wouldn't be any snow and it would be almost 50 degrees out. I don't know what I think about global warming, but I know this was crazy. And the tigers were enjoying every little bit of it that they could. This was one of the cubs that was born this year enjoying the mid-afternoon sunshine on the heated rock that the zoo has provided them to encourage them to come near enough to really get an up close and personal view of them, it was truly amazing, and his stripes had me drooling from a photographic standpoint.

A Farm study. 
I totally just wanted to steal this baby pygmy goat dang it.

Flamingos in January
I love that the flamingo's knees were so pink, had to make sure to get that. To see Flamingos, outside, in January, in upstate NY, didn't think it was something that I would ever see.

Just hanging around.

Happy Kitty. This is a rarity, she actually laid there and let me take a pic while snuggling and kinda posing. Too cute not to love.

Check out this back bend.
Awesome penguins, totally love.
The man and the city.
He shines, all the lights of the city pale in comparison. My love.

The pachyderm duo.
 Fun and sun in the Syracusian sunshine
The camera turns back.
On our trip to NYC Sammy took the camera from me at dinner to document the happy time that we were having from his perspective, he didn't do too bad of a job I'd say.
I'm watching you watching me
I'd never seen a duck with these markings before they were such a pretty reddish brown that I had to take a little time with this guy and let him know he was handsome.
Whoooooos hanging around?
The barn owls were wonderful, wish I'd had a better camera/angle to get a closer in picture not obscured by the wire fence.
The very next day.
So we drove to 'Cuse for the day, had a wonderful time, celebrated Jay's day, enjoyed the loveliness of the zoo, had a wonderful dinner, came back home, and woke up to this. I hope that the animals at the zoo are all bundled in today!

I have more photos to upload, I started this post almost a month ago, so I'm waaaaaaaaaaaay behind on the uploads/editing/taking photos.....I'm such a slacker. 

Love looking out from the pane of my window.
