We took a mid-week trip to the Oregon Zoo – in Portland. The thinking was something like this:
“Hey, mid-week before school gets out – and the weather is mid-80’s…”
And when we arrived, big yellow buses filled the parking lot.
Oh, well. At least it was enjoyable to get a day out – and though the place was filled with kids on field trips – it really wasn’t too crowded.
As for the photography – I started with the 70-200mm. Nice for the animals roaming their enclosures – but not good for setting the scene. Dang – tough choices… Finally went to the 24mm – and kept that on for the rest of the day. Trips like this, photographically, I think, would be easier with a wide-to-mid zoom lens.
