Humm… Let me think about it

I really enjoyed watching the gorillas at Zoo Atlanta.  The expressions are what I found most compelling.  Sometimes fierce, sometimes bored, sometimes playful but always interesting.  You just see those faces and wonder what they are thinking.

In this case, you see a young gorilla looking like he’s deep in thought.  He sat there for quite a while looking from one side to the other and playing with his toes as he enjoyed the beautiful, warm day.  I’m sure it is the close relation to humans that make the apes so attractive.  You know they aren’t human but still want to think of them as our wild brothers.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
