Anyone that knows me knows that two of my favorite things are animals and photography. So, having a surprise afternoon off in beautiful San Diego took me to their lovely zoo for the first time ever. I had a smile plastered on my face the entire time. Everywhere I turned it was one impressive animal after another. Zebras, giraffe, sloth, Galapagos turtle, hippo, so many glorious birds I couldn’t keep count. Any one of these animals would be impressive on their own. But each animal was one-upped by the next even cooler animal. Having something to photograph other than brides for a change was such a treat. Did I mention sloth?
