The Zoo: Abstracted

As so often we do, a group of photographer friends planned an outing. The days were getting warmer and school was not out yet so the group decided to head to the zoo.

Sounds like a great location for photo opportunities, right? Who doesn’t enjoy photographing the beautiful animals in their well-kept and lush surroundings.

The added challenge, however, was to only photograph abstract images!

I chose to spend the day exploring movement.  More specifically, I chose to use long exposures, thus allowing the movement of the animals to blur into abstraction.

It truly was a great outing with friends.  I enjoyed the day as well as the photographic rewards of the day.
