Zoo Atlanta – January 3, 2009

Panda at Zoo Atlanta

For the first weekend of the new year, I decided to visit the zoo in Atlanta.  It was a little overcast with sometimes rain and sometimes sprinkles making for an interesting photographic challenge.  All I had for support was my monopod which definitely helped, but the tripod would have been much better.  I managed to see the pandas, a couple of fuzzy pigs, and a giraffe taking cover from the rain.  The silverback area was excellent.  A couple of the youngsters were at the window while an adult has his back to the window most of the time.  Click here for the photographs on the web page.

Hapeville Depot in fog.

A few weeks have passed since I put up the previous post about the fog in Hapeville.  I thought I should get the web page together with photographs from the first night I went out.  This was the day after Christmas and the town was all lit up.  The fog provided some excellent lighting conditions.  Here is the web page with those photographs.
