Goats Only

I am a kid at heart.  
Or…
Maybe I’m finding that kid in my heart again. Reclaiming my inner child, perhaps.
Nothing like a trip to the zoo to make ya’ feel like a kid again.  At least it worked for me.

We took the day off and went to Fort Wayne, Indiana, to the Children’s Zoo. It was cold and we wore winter jackets, but even with that we lost track of time because we enjoyed it so much.  

I have to say that this photo is my favorite from that day.  Goats Only…implies “no you can’t come in here”.  We did peek inside and found that they were all enjoying their food, but these two had to be looking at all the people wandering around.  I wonder what they were saying to each other?

Have you done anything lately to honor that little kid inside you? 

Photo Club Field Trip

I spent several hours today with gals from my local photo club.
Our trip included a walk in Kendrick Woods, a favorite place of mine.
The trillium (above) was beautiful.
Mayapples were all over the place.
One of the gals spotted this snail on a log.
This walk in the woods today reminded me of all the camping my family did when I was a kid, and then how my parents continued that after all of us had left the nest. Many times they mentioned how nice it was to see spring coming up throughout the woods.  Today I could certainly see why they enjoyed that.  
I used my new 50mm lens all day today. It is fabulous. I think it will stay on my camera for a while.  If you’d like to see the entire set of images from today, click here to go to my Flickr page.
