Zoo Creatures

Previous images from the Cincinnati Zoo that I brought you came with ample description of the animals present. For the set of photos today, I was so caught up in capturing the moment that I neglected to record much about their identities.

This bird displays a wild array of feathers, but I like the color similarities between its red eye and burgundy feathers even more.

This member of canidae looks to be less than fully grown, but already fully charming.

Last but not least, I thought this literal picture of a cat picture (an ocelot, I believe) captures the zoo experience quite well.

Bro Shrine

The end of the school year has finally arrived (I’m proctoring a final as we speak), and that leads to a lot of complicated emotions for graduating seniors: relief, regret, nostalgia, hope, etc. In a disused utility stairwell between a loading dock and a backstage prep area, I found this charming little shrine/still life. In the context of the space and the moment, I can’t begin to imagine what kind of meaning this structure contains. There’s a lovely symmetry though, isn’t there?
