LA Zoo - Boring
Camera: K-x Photo Location: LA Zoo 
Posted By: joodiespost, 01-04-2010, 08:30 PM

I took my 18-55 Kit Lens so I couldn't get closeup shots. Not sure if it's me but the zoo actually was sorta boring. I took many but here are the memorable ones

Should be NSFW...

Thanks for sharing, I would be satisfied with both photos if I took them!

yea guys, this zoo was pretty depressing. A lot of the exhibits were closed and the animals just weren't lively. I wouldn't blame them... Thanks Andi, it wasn't must of a shot but LBA kicked in and I felt victim to the DA 55-300 I just ordered it. The whole time at the Zoo, I blamed myself for not getting a telephoto lens ^^

I'm surprised they were shot with a kit lens...looks like you were shooting with the 55-300 You'll love the DA 55-300 when you get it...a great lens for the money. BTW...with that last shot shouldn't you have labled this post...not work-safe? lol

im sorry, I didn't think animal xxx would be nsfw... I'll keep that in mind. By the way, any of you guys know why the lions always look so pissed off after gettin jiggy withit? I can understand the lioness, because it was like 10 seconds long

Just more examples of K-x showing the goods rendition is great the animals you captured are good for the kit lens the 55-300 will be a bonus for you TFS
