90/365... Zoo joy.

Hubby and I took our babies to the zoo today. It was a beautiful, warm spring day (80 degrees!). We thought it was the perfect way to spend the day as a family.

Apparently the rest of the world thought the same.

Zoo joy.


And this is my favorite photo from the day.

Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the silhouette! I'm horrible at those. Is this near an aquarium at the zoo?

Thank you everyone for your comments :).

For the second photo, I used spot metering and upped the blacks a tiny bit in CS4. Here are my settings... Manual, 1/4000, f3.5, ISO 800, 85mm 1.8 lens, no flash. Hope that helps :) When the other two are older (and more cooperative), I would LOVE to get a shot of all 4 of my kiddos like this :).

Gotta love Spring break and the crowds that go with it! The mall was packed yesterday too, but we had fun. Great shots, of course that silhouette is amazing! Thanks for posting the settings.
