About that Z

throughout this challenge, other than a couple or three photos of the kids, the shots I've shown were mine.   however, below you will see some spectacular photos from my sister, gina, from her zoo albums.   i'd tell which zoo for each pic, but the truth is, I can't remember.  zag-nap it!  

gina is a fantastic photographer, and she is the one who got me interested in taking a few shots...which has culminated into a few thousand photos!   (of course, for me, it seems like it takes a few thousand shots to get some good ones!  good thing it's all digital.) i am now in the thinking stages of buying a new camera.  we will have to wait and see if common sense prevails.   you will notice no capitalization for this post.   that is in honor of gina, because when she blogged some years ago, she didn't use capitalization, and often in her online albums, she still does not.  those closest to me will know what a challenge this was.
