Japanese Pagoda - Point Defiance Park

Well...I did capture some nice photos of a tiger, and other critters - but no lions or bears!

Animals are also a subject that I rarely photograph, mainly because they are usually found only in zoos. Also, a photographers nightmare, is having it's subject's image obstucted because of a fence or netting...which makes for a very difficult shot. The Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, Washington, has a few areas that allow the photographer to get a decent shot...but one must use their telephoto lense to get close to the subject. I used my Digital Canon Rebel XT, with a Canon 75-300mm lens. My lens doesn't have the "image stabilizer" feature, so getting good focus can be a real chore.

I'm not waiting for National Geographic to knock down my door, but I did get some decent photos, especially this being my first time photographing wild animals.

Enjoy the view!

Farmers Market Photos

Since I'm more of a landscape photographer, I don't photograph flowers very often. Yesterday I went to check out the Farmers Market in the Proctor District in Tacoma, Washington. I came away with some rather amazing shots...including some of a salmon sculpture nearby.
